Direct debits are convenient automatic payments. They're set up on your eligible Newcastle Permanent account by using your BSB and account number.

It allows merchants or service providers to withdraw an agreed amount from your account at scheduled times, e.g., fortnightly.

Direct debits are used for services, bills, or loan repayments.

To cancel your direct debit, you can give us a call or visit your local branch.

You'll need the following information to cancel a direct debit:

  • Your account number that's debited
  • Name of the merchant or service provider
  • Date of your last direct debit
  • Amount of your last direct debit
  • And for joint accounts with joint operation: Both owners need to authorise cancellation requests for any joint accounts with full access.

Recurring payments are similar to direct debits. However, the automatic payments are set up from your debit or credit card.

You'll set up a recurring payment using your card number, expiry date, and CVV number.

You'll have to contact your service provider or merchant directly to cancel or update your recurring payment.

Some merchants or service providers allow you to cancel or update these payments through their website or app.

Please note:
If your credit or debit card's expiry date changes, it's your responsibility to inform the merchant or service provider.
Where possible, we will assist you to seek a chargeback of any unauthorised payments debited to your credit or debit card account under a recurring payment arrangement. To do so, we may need written confirmation or other evidence from you that you cancelled the payment arrangement.
