Moving means setting up or amending your household accounts.
And it’s a golden opportunity to change for the better the way you
pay for your services – by shifting payments on to Direct Debit.
Designed to make your life easier
Direct Debit is a great way to take control of your finances.
It can ensure your bills are paid on time, with the least
inconvenience to you. And satisfaction is guaranteed, or your
money back. You can even save money – many companies
offer discounts to their Direct Debit customers because they
welcome the efficiency and pass the savings back to you!
How to change over
Changing to Direct Debit is easy. Many bills already carry a form
you can complete, or you can ask the supplier to send you one.
If you are amending your details through telephone helpdesks or
via the internet don’t forget to ask about changing your payment
option as many service providers can do this while you are on
the phone or online to them.

Schools and school buses
Write to your new local authority for information about
schools in the area. Notify the current school’s head teacher
of your child’s leaving date.
De-register if you are moving away and research alternatives
nearer to your new address. Liaise with your hospital if you
are undergoing regular treatment.
Stocks and shares
You need to notify the registrar of any change of address,
you will find details on your certificates or dividend
documentation - or ask your broker to do this for you.
