APCA Numbers


An "APCA Number" is the six digit unique identification number which identifies individuals and companies approved by financial institutions to use in the Direct Entry system. It is also called the Direct Entry User ID (or the BECS ID or BUDS ID).

Although referred to as APCA numbers, these IDs are actually issued by financial institutions.

If you require an ID, please contact your financial institution through your relationship manager or the business banking area.
