My last month's bill payment to you doesn't show on the bill - why?

If you paid us after your payment due date last month, then it won't show as paid on your current bill. It will show on your next bill.

If it still isn't showing, and you have paid, please call us on 01608 434 000 and advise of your payment details. Business customers please call 01608 434 070.

I have selected to pay by direct debit but have received an invoice - why?

We send you an invoice to let you know how much we will be deducting by Direct Debit. It should say "send no payment". 

If there is a requirement to pay, for example, your direct debit form is still being processed, a remittance request will show on the invoice.

There's an issue with the bill amount - what should I do next?

Please call us so we understand the issue. If it's an incorrect charge, we will be able to arrange a credit where necessary, to your next bill.

Why do we undertake credit checks?

We undertake credit checks to safeguard our member’s investment in our Society. When we sell equipment and/or services, our Society is exposed to the risk that a customer (new or existing) may not pay fully for the equipment provided and/or the services used, which may lead to a loss to the Society for the particular customer.

By undertaking credit check we aim to ensure that new customers are credit worthy, and that they are who they claim to be. We may also perform credit checks on existing customers, when they want to upgrade their equipment and/or services.

How do we undertake the credit checks?

We use a third party to provide this service, which includes name and address checks from the electoral roll and other information.

What happens if a credit check is failed?

If a credit check is failed, we may not open a credit account for you. However, we may ask for a deposit instead, which may lead to a credit account being created.

Deposit

If a credit check is failed, or the value of the order/service is deemed high, we may ask for a deposit before equipment and/or services are provided. Usually, we’ll refund the deposit when we have received a minimum of three full monthly payments.
