Direct debit is the easiest way to pay your bill. The amount you owe us is automatically taken out of your bank account each month after you’ve received your bill.

Your bill is always paid on the due date, so you always get your prompt payment discount. You hardly need to think about your bill at all. If the due date falls on a public holiday, we’ll debit your account on the next business day.

You can do this in our online tools

If you sign into our online tools, you can set up and configure paying by direct debit automatically.
