Benefits of Direct Debit payments

  • Reliable income

    You set the date of the collection so you know when cleared funds will be deposited into your account. These regular payments mean you can forecast and manage cash flow more accurately.

  • Reduces attrition

    Direct Debits are easy and convenient for your payers, reducing the risk of them moving to another organisation or expiring card details.

  • Saves time

    You won’t spend time reconciling payments or chasing late payers, so your admin burden and workload is reduced.

  • Safe and secure

    Transactions are processed according to the highest security specifications, and online services provide additional security and accuracy for you and your payers.

  • Cost effective

    Direct Debits are cheaper to process than cheques or other payment methods.

  • Flexible

    Direct Debit enables you to collect variable amounts on regular or irregular dates.

  • Greater efficiency

    You control the payment dates, amounts and frequency of payments. Any changes are controlled by you so you won’t be held up waiting for your payer to contact their bank.

  • Trusted

    Direct Debit is the United Kingdom’s preferred method for making regular payments, with almost 9 out of 10 adults having at least 1 Direct Debit commitment.
