Keeping us up-to-date:
You can settle any outstanding balances with us by paying, either on your portal or by contacting our team on 0330 024 17 77. For more information, see our Paying a bill article.
Why would I have an amount outstanding?
An outstanding balance is usually caused by one or more missed payments. This is often due to an issue with your Direct Debit. Common reasons for a Direct Debit failure include:
- Not enough funds
- Your Direct Debit Instruction has been cancelled with your bank
- Your account has been moved or closed
Occasionally, our systems may not have recognised that a payment was due, and therefore we didn't take it. While we would always work with you in these circumstances, you would still be required to make the payment once we notice the mistake.
It's easy to fix any Direct Debit issue on your portal.
Outstanding balances left unpaid could lead to debt management measures including, but not limited to, suspension of services, additional charges and further action. We only take such action as a last resort, and we're very happy to work with you.
Regularly paying by monthly Direct Debit removes the risk of these measures.
