The direct debit mandate is the legal basis for collecting payments by SEPA direct debit.
Before you create a direct debit for collection from your customer, your customer must sign the direct debit mandate. The signature authorizes you to collect payments from your customer's (debtor's) account via direct debit.
You can view a template for the mandate here.
If a direct debit is disputed, we may require you to submit the signed, associated mandate within 7 business days.
