The Direct Debit Guarantee

  • This Guarantee is offered by all banks and building societies that accept instructions to pay Direct Debits.
  • If there are any changes to the amount, date or frequency of your Direct Debit, Newcastle City Council will notify you at least 10 working days in advance of your account being debited or as otherwise agreed. If you request Newcastle City Council to collect a payment, confirmation of the amount and date will be given/sent to you.
  • If an error is made in the payment of your Direct Debit by Newcastle City Council, or your bank or building society, you are entitled to a full and immediate refund of the amount paid from your bank or building society.
  • If you receive a refund you are not entitled to, you must pay it back when Newcastle City Council ask you to.
  • You can cancel a Direct Debit at any time by simply contacting your bank or building society. Written confirmation may be required. Please also notify us.
