Termination of a PAD contract does not terminate the contract for goods or services between you and your customer or terminate an amount they owe you. With the termination of the PAD contract, the customer simply indicates that he no longer wishes to pay by PAD. You must enter into other agreements with you to pay the amounts due. The Canadian Payments Association is very specific to the time it takes to notify your customers when payments come out (remember what I said earlier about the meaning of DAP to have no surprises?). It all depends on the nature of the agreement you have entered into. The alternative is for payers and beneficiaries to agree to waive or shorten the notification period. Yes. The ideal balance is to provide your customer with enough information to understand the details of the agreement, while ensuring that their bank account number is masked enough to protect their privacy and security. This is what a PAD agreement looks like, as well as the necessary elements, as described by the Canadian Payments Association: a pre-authorized direct debit agreement should generally contain the following information: The accountant must terminate the agreement within 30 days of termination. Yes, but you must clearly state this in the payer`s pad agreement.
If included in the PAD Agreement, the payer and the payee may mutually agree to waive or shorten the notification period. If you follow the numbering guides, here you will find an explanation of the 8 requirements of a PAD agreement. If you make a mistake, you can ask your financial institution to call it back (if it has not yet been processed) or to make an error correction (if it has already been processed). You must do so within the time limits set out in your agreement with your financial institution. In the case of commercial PADs, a company has 10 days from the date of payment to report an incorrect or unauthorized pre-authorized charge to your financial institution. In the absence of an agreement between the company and the accountant, the company has 90 days to report the problem. Keep a copy of the changes to the original agreement for at least one year after the last account load. Ok, now that we`ve taken care of it, let`s dig into agreements! The most common type of authorization is a paper form that is completed by the payer in person. Typically, the payer provides an invalid cheque, along with the agreement, to verify their ID and provide their account details. Easy to process, easy to verify.
The only problem is that not all businesses can see their customers personally and regularly. For variable quantities of PADs at specified intervals (e.g. monthly), you must inform the customer at least 10 days before each payment, unless you and your customer mutually agree to shorten or cancel this “pre-notification” period in the payer`s PAD agreement. . . .
