Direct debits

 

A Direct Debit is the easiest way to make a regular payment. It’s easy to set up and it’s made automatically, so you do not need to worry about paying on time.

Your Direct Debit tells your bank or building society that you’ve given us permission to take money from your account.

You can choose when your payment is taken. We have to let you know how much we’re going to take and when, before we take it.

Your Direct Debits will be protected by the Direct Debit Guarantee Scheme. This means they’re safe and secure and your bank will give you a full refund if there’s ever a mistake.
