This is the easiest and most convenient way to pay and it's the best way to make sure your DMP runs smoothly.
It’s completely free and gives you one less thing to worry about each month as we collect your payment straight from your bank account.
You can also choose whether we do this on the 1st or the 10th of each month.
If your situation ever changes and your payment goes up or goes down we’ll amend your Direct Debit to collect the new amount. You won’t need to contact your bank or make any changes; we’ll do it all for you.
If you haven’t got your Direct Debit up and running already you can do this quickly and easily. Just log in to our OnlineDMP area and you can set your Direct Debit up in a matter of minutes (as long as you've got your account details to hand).
Paying by Direct Debit is the best way to make sure your DMP runs smoothly.
There are other ways you can pay your DMP, but we’d always recommend Direct Debit.
If you choose to pay by standing order you’ll need to arrange for your bank to send us the payment before the 17th of each month. The payment needs to be made to the following account:
- Sort code – 20 48 46
- Account number – 70238163
You’ll need to include your StepChange client reference number and surname with each payment you make e.g. 123456 Smith (Please make sure there is a space between your client reference number and surname).
If you don’t do this the money won’t be added to your DMP and we won’t be able to pay your creditors. If we can’t pay your creditors they might contact you directly and ask for payments.
If your payment changes you’ll need to contact your bank and make sure the standing order is changed.
If you use online banking you can set up a regular transfer to send us your DMP payment each month. You'll just need to:
- Use the account details from the standing order section above
- Include your StepChange client reference number and surname e.g. 123456 Smith (Please make sure there is a space between your client reference number and surname)
- Make sure your payment is sent before the 10th of each month
You can also make your DMP payment over the counter at any Barclays branch using the account details from the standing order section.
