The net amount of your bill will be withdrawn from your bank account on the due date printed on your bill. You will continue to receive your bills, as usual, showing the amount that will be withdrawn. A message will appear on your bill telling you that you are a Pre Authorized Payment, P.A.P., customer and not to pay the bill, as it will come out of your bank account automatically on the due date. We require a void cheque and a signature to set your account up for P.A.P.
Make budgeting easier by signing up for our Budget Payment Plan. Your billing costs for the year are estimated based on past usage and spread equally over the year, based on 12 equal monthly payments. The payments are automatically withdrawn from your account on the 6th or the 20th (your choice) of each month. You will receive your bills as usual with a message on the bill indicating you are a Pre Authorized Payment, P.A.P. customer, on our Budget Plan and indicating that you are not to pay the bill, as your equal billing payment will automatically come out on the 6th or the 20th of each month. We suggest that you keep an eye on the status of your account to make sure the balance does not get too high. Your account will be reconciled yearly and a new equal payment amount will be calculated.
If you wish to sign up for budget billing we will need to calculate the monthly amount, for you, and we will need a void cheque and a signature.
Attention Customers on the Budget Billing Plan – Your October bill reconciles your annual usage and balances your account, crediting any overpayment or charging any balance owing in November. You will be notified in October of this reconciliation and your new equal monthly payment amount due in December. Please note, this equal monthly payment amount is subject to a semi-annual review that may require an additional adjustment due to usage or rate changes. Advance notification will be provided if an adjustment is required.
