What is Direct Debit?
Direct Debit is the automatic payment of bills from your nominated bank account. It is simple, convenient and secure.
You still have complete control over your money. We (and your Financial Institution) just do the work for you.
Council will still send you an account so you know how much you have left to pay. This means that you can still put it up on the 'fridge' to remind you to make sure that you have enough money in your account to cover you direct debit payment on the day that it is due to be taken out of your nominated bank account.
Direct Debits can be made from your nominated bank account or credit card.
Why use Direct Debit?
You save money and time. There is no waiting in queues at the bank or ATM to get your money out and no more writing out cheques and then having to post them. No more late payments caused by delays in the mail.
You keep your money longer (right up until the due date) and you know exactly what day the money will leave your account.
