​Direct Debit Control Centre - Smartphone and tablet application

Stay effortlessly on top of your finances with the Direct Debit Control Centre, an easy-to-use app which puts you in control of your bill payments.

The Control Centre is the easiest way to keep track of all of your Direct Debits, making sure you always know how much is scheduled to leave your bank or building society account and when.

Simply register each of your Direct Debits on the app to receive a reminder of when a payment is due to go out. If you find yourself a bit short at any point, you’ll have time to move money around, arrange an overdraft or contact the biller to make other payment arrangements, giving you control of your finances.
