Direct Debit issue 24th May

There was an issue with direct debits where a small number of payments were not taken from some customer accounts over the last week. We are really sorry for any inconvenience caused. Please read the below for more information and any action that you need to take.

What happened?

We should have collected your bill on or around the 24th May. Due to a processing error, we didn’t do that. 

What will happen next?   

If you have paid your bill manually via a card payment between the 24th May and 1st June you do not need to take any more action and we will not try to collect it again. If you have manually paid it after this date, we will refund any extra payment automatically on the 6th June.  This may take a few days to reach your account.  

If you have not paid your bill manually, we will attempt to claim this payment on 5th June. Please check your bank account to make sure that you have the correct amount of funds available.   

What if I am struggling to pay?  

Don’t worry, please contact us via contact us to discuss your options. 

What will happen with my June bill?   

Your June bill will show a previous balance that relates to your May bill and will say we will collect both amounts in June. If you have already paid your bill or we have subsequently collected payment by direct debit, we will only attempt to take the charge for June.
