    Birmingham Midshires Faster Payment changes 29th Jul 18 at 1:02 AM
    I'm sure I had received a letter a week or two ago from Birmingham Midshires notifying of a change to account details for payments in but can't find it for the life of me. A search on the forums and internet in general and on BM's site shows nothing. Anyone have the details?

    Thanks. I presume this info will be more visibly communicated closer to the date ie updating their online banking payment/linked account page (it isn't currently) and an email reminder and/or online banking message.

    I tried to change my payment from Nationwide to BM using the new details today. Nationwide rejected the sortdode as invalid, and the sortcode checker at the Faster Payments website says it cannot accept FPs.

    Presumably this will be OK on or after 16th Sept.
