Direct Debiting is not available on all bank accounts. You will need to check with your bank or financial institution if you are uncertain whether your account is suitable for direct debiting. Credit Cards and some passbook accounts are not suitable for Direct Debits.
You should check your account details against a recent statement from your bank or financial institution to ensure their correctness. If uncertain, check with your bank or financial institution before completing the DDR.

It is your responsibility to have sufficient clear funds available in the relevant account by the due date to permit the payment of Debit items in accordance with the DDR.
When the due date for payment falls on a day which is not a Business Day the Debit will be processed by the Foundation on the next available Business Day. If you are uncertain when the debit will be processed to your account, please inquire directly to your Bank or Financial Institution.
If Debit items are returned unpaid by your Bank or Financial Institution, the Foundation will debit your account with the amount of the returned debit plus any processing charges incurred by the Foundation.
