Direct Debits

Direct debit is the “set and forget” way to pay regular bills. It is most often used for ongoing payments like mortgage repayments, insurance premiums and utility bills, but can also be used for one-off payments. Amounts can be fixed, for example for loan repayments, or can vary with each payment for example for mobile phone bills or utility bills. 

You can organize and prearrange a regular payment from your nominated account to a nominated recipient at regular intervals. Amounts can be fixed or can vary.

To start paying by direct debit, you simply need to complete the biller organisation’s Direct Debit Request authority form. From then on payments will be deducted automatically from your account.

Direct Credits

Direct credit is widely used by businesses to make regular, low value payments into transaction accounts. Common examples  are salary payments, payments by government departments such as Centrelink benefits, and dividends and interest payments. You can have these funds ( i.e. salary, dividends etc )  directly credited to your account via the Direct Credit system by quoting our BSB 803-209 and your account number and account name . Examples include:

  • Salary
  • Pension/allowance
  • Tax refund
  • Share Dividends

Providing this information to the payee  ie your employer, will allow them to make payment in this fashion. Once the regular credit commences, you can allocate portions of your of direct credit to go into different accounts by contacting us on 03 8417 1777 or 1300 366 350.
