No need to visit your branch to cancel your Direct Debit or standing order

Set up, view and cancel your standing orders and Direct Debits using your banking app. 

Open up the app to set up standing orders to saved payees, companies or between your own accounts. You can also view the status of your direct debits, check the details, keep an eye on the next payment date and cancel future payments.

  • To cancel a Direct Debit from within the banking app you have up until 8.20pm (UK time) on the day the payment is due to be taken from your account. At or after 8.20pm (UK time), the payment due on that day will have been taken and we will not have been able to retrieve it.
