What is a Direct Debit?

A Direct Debit is an agreement between you and the organisation you’re paying, which allows the organisation you want to pay to collect varying amounts from your account – but only if you’ve been given advanced notice of the amounts and dates of collection.

In a nutshell, Direct Debit is the simplest and most convenient way for you to pay regular and occasional bills.

Move your Direct Debits to Ulster Bank

Our switcher service helps you to move all your existing Direct Debits when you open an Ulster Bank account.

As part of the process, Direct Debits will be transferred and you can choose your own switch date. Your new account will be up and running within 10 working days of the switch date.

If you only want to move some Direct Debits from another bank you need to contact the supplier who you pay the direct debit to and provide them with updated details to take the Direct Debit from your Ulster Bank account.
