Variable Direct Debiting allows you to increase the amount of recurring payments or individual instalments over time. You can always reduce the amount being charged by a Direct Debit, however you can only increase the amount using a Variable Direct Debit.
Create a new Direct Debit as normal and make sure to select Variable amount not a Fixed Amount. Enter necessary details and authorise. Variable Direct Debits can be authorised normally, however when using a paper form you will need to make sure that you have outlined that the Direct Debit amount and frequency can be changed in the terms and conditions.
Direct Debit forms can be downloaded from the secure client site under Direct Debits in the menu. You can not alter the terms and conditions of this form, however you are permitted to place your own logo on the Direct Debit Request form.
Once the DDR has been uploaded we must approve the schedule. This is generally done within a few hours of uploading the DDR. If any information on the schedule does NOT match the DDR the schedule will be rejected and you will be required to re-submit the schedule.
