Everything about my direct debit

What is a direct debit?

A direct debit is an automatic payment order. This means that the payment of your BASE bills/invoices will happen automatically. In other words... always on time! 

How to activate a direct debit?

You can easily activate a European direct debit (SEPA) via Doccle or in your customer zone. Go to Your invoices/bills in the customer zone and click on Receive/pay your invoice/bill. Submit a request and we will activate the direct debit as quickly as possible.

Good to know

  • Note that it will take several days for your direct debit to be activated. You next bill/invoice will clearly mention whether  the direct debit is already active. Is it not active yet? Then make sure to pay this bill/invoice either online or by bank transfer.
  • As soon as "The amount of <€ xxxx> will be deducted from your European direct debit <yyyyyyyyyyy> on <ddmmyyyy>" is stated on your bill/invoice, your direct debit is properly active.
