In the event that an error is made in the payment of your Direct Debit*, either by the organisation or your bank or building society, you are entitled to a full and immediate refund from your bank of the amount paid.
Simply contact your bank or building society. They are responsible for refunding the money - even if the original error was made by the organisation collecting the payment. But remember, if you receive a refund you are not entitled to, you must pay it back when the organisation asks you to.

Should your bank fail to provide a refund under the terms of the Guarantee:Contact them again escalating the communication to your Branch Manager or Customer Service Manager and cite the Direct Debit Guarantee.
