How to set up a bank transfer correctly
Enter the correct information in each of the 3 fields your bank provides for you: Particulars, Code, and Reference. This is important so we can identify the payment.
You can find this 8-digit number on your rates notice
eg, 10 Example Street
If you sell your property and buy another, you will need to change the code and reference number on your autobank payment. It is your responsibility to ensure the payment is correctly referenced.
