To terminate a direct debit contract before authorization, you must inform the accountant in writing. Be sure to keep a copy of this leaflet. Your agreement should contain details on the withdrawal of a pre-installed direct debit. Financial institutions are responsible for verifying the forms and associated processes that their customers wish to offer PADs as a payment method. Your financial institution may have a standard agreement that your customers must use. Here are some of the things to consider when using an authorized direct debit agreement: the accountant must terminate the contract within 30 days of termination. Yes, but you must clearly state this in the payer`s pad agreement. Yes, by applying the termination process in your payer`s PAD agreement or letting you know that they no longer want to pay per PAD. We recommend that the customer do so in writing and obtain a copy of the cancellation request.
To be able to offer authorized direct debits to its customers, an organization must have a contract (usually called an H1 payment letter) with your financial institution. In this agreement, your financial institution agrees to issue PADs on behalf of the accountant and they in turn agree to abide by the rules applicable to PADs. There are mandatory elements that must be included in this declaration of commitment of the beneficiary. Detailed information can be found in rule H1. In the case of commercial PADs, a company has 10 days from the date of payment to report an incorrect or unauthorized pre-authorized charge to your financial institution. In the absence of an agreement between the company and the accountant, the company has 90 days to report the problem. Termination of a PAD contract does not terminate the contract for goods or services between you and your customer or terminate an amount they owe you. With the termination of the PAD contract, the customer simply indicates that he no longer wishes to pay by PAD. You must enter into other agreements with you to pay the amounts due. Termination of a direct debit agreement prior to authorization does not void your contract for goods or services with the accountant or an amount due. Cancellation applies to the payment method. If existing agreements do not contain an assignment clause, the new owner must provide, at least ten days before the withdrawal of funds from its accounts, a written communication on the full details of the assignment (including the name and contact information of the new owner).
