Direct debit service agreement
This agreement outlines how each payment option is processed, as well as your rights and obligations under the agreement.
If the direct debit payment date is not a business day, funds will be drawn on the next business day.
Direct debit options
The cost of your annual gas and electricity bills is split into even payments. You pay the same price per fortnight or month, from your nominated savings, cheque or credit card account.
Every six months we re-calculate your payment amount based on your usage and may adjust your deductions accordingly. We’ll notify you in writing of the changed amount.
The full amount of your bill is deducted on the day the payment is due from your nominated savings, cheque or credit card account.
If you receive payments for solar power generation, you’re eligible for FullPay Solar. If you generate more credits than you use, net credits will automatically be refunded to your nominated cheque or savings account. If you generate less energy than you use, the remaining balance will be deducted from your nominated account on the day the payment is due.
We accept Visa or MasterCard for credit card direct debit payments. A payment processing fee of up to 0.50% (GST inclusive) may apply to payments made from a credit card.
We’ll give you at least 14 days notice in writing if there are any changes to the terms of the agreement, unless otherwise agreed.
All information you provide about your savings, cheque or credit card accounts is kept in the strictest confidence between us and your bank, building society or credit union. We will not pass the information on to anyone else.
If you wish to alter, defer or cancel your direct debit at any time, you must notify us at least five business days before the date the direct debit deduction is due to be made so the necessary changes can be arranged. We won’t draw from your account until the agreed new direct debit deduction date.
A direct debit application remains in force until it is cancelled. If you believe we have drawn on your account incorrectly call 13 14 93. We will make every attempt to resolve the dispute within five business days.
Direct debit may not be available on all types of savings, cheque or credit card accounts, so you should check with your bank, building society or credit union before completing the direct debit application.
Once you’ve agreed to use direct debit for payment of your account/s you must have sufficient funds in your nominated savings, cheque or credit card account on the direct debit deduction date to cover the amount shown on your bill, or to cover your agreed payment deduction. If there are insufficient funds in your account on the direct debit deduction date, your bank, building society or credit union may charge a fee that you are obliged to pay.
If your bank, building society or credit union rejects the deduction, you may incur a charge to cover administration costs and your direct debit arrangements may be cancelled without further notice.
If you change your nominated savings, cheque or credit card account, you need to complete a new direct debit application or call 13 14 93 to update your details.
