How do I set up a Direct Debit?

The company or provider sets up the Direct Debit

A Direct Debit is an agreement between you and a business (such as a phone company or a gym). When you agree with a company to pay by Direct Debit, they will ask you to fill out an instruction, to say you’re happy for them to collect money from your account. They then set up the Direct Debit with us on your behalf.

The company will need:

  • Your 8-digit account number and 6-digit sort code (you can find this on your card)
  • Our head office address, which is:
    Nationwide House
    Pipers Way
    SN3 1TX

Did you want to set up a standing order?

Standing orders are set up by you to pay another bank account on a regular basis – such as a landlord for rent, or a friend or family member. You can set these up using the Internet Bank.
