A Direct Debit is a transaction where Citibank will automatically debit your account to make a payment to another bank account, based on your instruction. The amounts can vary from one payment to another.
The following pricing structure pertaining to Direct Debits on your account are applicable:
|Direct Debit||Setup||Stop Payment||Return due to Insufficient funds*|
|Banking Account||Free||Free||AED 25
No charge for CPC
|*Charges of AED 25 is applicable for every return of Direct Debit Instruction due to 'Insufficient Funds'.|
Once a Direct Debit instruction is placed, you are responsible for ensuring that your account has sufficient funds to satisfy your liabilities to the beneficiary. If there is more than one Direct Debit request on your account, the requests will be processed on a first-in first-out basis. This may result in one or more Direct Debit request being dishonoured if there are insufficient funds in your account to meet all payments.
The Direct Debit will be returned without referral by Citibank in case of insufficient funds. In the event of any shortfall, you will be liable for any costs, fees, penalties and charges levied by Citibank. Please also note that partial payment of any Direct Debit Instruction will not be executed.
Missing the minimum payment due in any month and/or non-adherence to the bank’s Terms and Conditions may subject you to negative consequences and limit your ability to access further financing in the future, including but not limited to, late fee charges, a negative impact on your credit bureau rating, your card account going into arrears and/or collections measures which may include legal action and/or trigger all monies becoming due immediately. If you only make the minimum payment each month, you will pay more in interest and it will take you longer to pay off your outstanding balance.
