Direct Debits for bank accounts which need more than one signature
If you have a bank account where more than one signatory is required to set up a Direct Debit, we cannot accept on line applications or take the details over the telephone. To set up a Direct Debit please download, complete and return the form below, or contact us and we will send one to you.
When your Direct Debit is set up
We will send you a new bill to confirm we have started or amended your Direct Debit.
We need you to tell us if your bank details change. Please use the forms above to do this.
You do not need to reapply every year to pay by Direct Debit. Payments will continue unless you tell us to stop.
You can cancel a Direct Debit by contacting your bank. Please also let us know you have done this. If you are having difficulties making payments get in touch to see what we can do to help.
