Direct Debit FAQs

Please read through our most Frequently Asked Questions with reference to making Direct Debit payments.

Can I pay from my building society account?
Yes, you can use either a bank or building society account.

What are the payment dates?
Payments are collected on the 1st of each month, or the following working day if this falls on a bank holiday.

How much do I have to pay?
