Some businesses allow you to make a direct debit arrangement to automatically pay your bills.
Under the arrangement, you authorise the business to deduct the amount of your bill directly from your bank account. Your bank will not accept any transactions that you have not properly authorised.
To cancel a business´s authority to debit your account, contact them to make other arrangements. Alternatively, write to your bank to request this at any time.
