Direct debit request

Take the hassle out of paying your bills by setting up a direct debit and be ahead before your next bill.

With direct debit you have a couple of options:

  1. Deduct a regular amount out of your nominated bank account. This credits your account until your next bill is generated. Any remaining balance is payable by the due date.
  2. Deduct the total bill amount out of your nominated bank account on the due date of your bill.
