Payments UK, the trade association launched in June to support the payments industry, said that a further six organisations have signed up to become associate members.
The latest associates are:
- Icon Solutions (UK) Ltd

- Nets A/S
- Sidley Austin LLP

Payments UK now has 29 associate members and 38 full members. “Our growing membership is a testament to the vital role Payments UK has to play within an ever-changing payments industry,” commented its chief executive (CEO), Maurice Cleaves.
“A great example is our ground-breaking World Class Payments project. Through this work we have set out a clear, evidence-based vision of how payments in the UK might look in the future if they are built on customers’ needs. Our growing membership can help us move this vision forward and ensure we deliver the very best outcomes for the industry and its many different customers.”
