Direct debit payments will be submitted 3 days in advance of the invoice due date and can take up to 7 working days to be processed.
During this time, the system will not send out any payment reminders unless the direct debit collection fails.
The Direct Debit service is operated by GoCardless and their name will appear on your bank statement for any payments taken using this service.
You can cancel your direct debit at any time, but please note that any payments currently being processed are not reversible and you will need to raise a support ticket to the Accounts Department to make them aware.
