“We had no way to pay our staff and then we found IGsend from Income Group.”

What we did for them

When Hog and Hedge was setting up, they hit a problem with their bank trying to open a payment facility to pay staff. They thought they needed to use Bacs, in doing so needed a Service User Number (SUN) and they couldn’t get one!

They came across Income Group and after reading our blogs discovered that a better option was to use Faster Payments and IGsend, our payment platform.

Having finally found the help needed, the rest is history! No need for a SUN, the Income Group relationship was opened within a couple of days and IGsend was set up to work with Xero, their accounting software, making the connection simple.

Employees are paid in a matter of seconds, on time, every time, without fail.

Hog and Hedge have been a valued customer ever since.

What they said about our services

“I run a small business in the hospitality sector and Faster Payments for our payroll during this difficult time has been a life-saver.

Best of all, we were set up and running in three days. It couldn’t have been simpler.”

James Pollock, Co-founder
