Your questions
answered...
Q
A
&
Q. Why is there no amount on the direct debit authority form?
A. /eaving the amount off the 'irect 'ebit Authority means you still receive advice of the regular
payment amount by letter and you don’t have to go to the trouble of completing a new form as you
do for Automatic Payments should the rates amount change in the future.
Q. What happens if I miss a payment?
A. If you miss a payment your remaining payments for the rating year will increase to cover the missed
payment. Or if two payments are missed this authority will be cancelled.
Q. But how do I know that when I sign the form, the Council won’t help themselves to whatever they
want from my bank account?
A. )irstly, no organisation can provide a 'irect 'ebit service to you unless approved by their bank as
possessing the utmost integrity and ability to fulÀl the very strict code of conduct agreed by the
Banking system as a whole. Secondly, the Council must provide you, in advance, with details of the
date and the amount to be debited from your bank account. Thirdly, all banks stand behind the
service and will ensure that, for example, the organisation meets the requirement of the 'irect 'ebit
service. If the notice requirements are not compiled with, you can have the amount reversed.
Q. Are payments only made to the Waitomo District Council?
A. <es, payments can only be made to the organisation named on the ¶'irect 'ebit Authority’ form. A
separate 'irect 'ebit Authority is required for each organisation with which you wish to make similar
arrangements.
Q. What happens if I disagree with the amount shown on my bill?
A. Contact Waitomo 'istrict Council on    or   .
Q. What happens if I change my bank account?
A. A new 'irect 'ebit Authority form needs to be completed and provided to the Waitomo 'istrict
Council.
Q. Which bank account can I make payments from?
A. Cheque accounts are popular with most customers for this type of payment. However, most banks
offer a range of accounts from which payment may be made. Simply enquire at the local branch of
your bank.
