Direct Debit Instruction
The Direct Debit Instruction or DDI as it is often referred to, is the form that a payer signs in order to give their authority for an organisation to collect Direct Debits from their account. Although in many cases nowadays the traditional paper form has been replaced by the Paperless Direct Debit process there are still many organisations that only use paper forms and all organisations must offer the alternative of a paper form if a customer would prefer it.
This example shows more detail of a standard Direct Debit Instruction with red circles showing required fields. There are many other versions of this form that are permitted by the scheme, full details are in the Service User’s Guide and Rules.
