Can I cancel a direct debit due in the next 3 working days?

You can cancel a direct debit online up to 8.20pm (UK time) on the day the payment is due to be taken from your account.

Before you cancel a direct debit you should usually let the payee know that you're about to do this.

To cancel a direct debit online:

  1. Log in to Online Banking at www.onlinebanking.natwestinternational.com (opens in a new window)
  2. Select 'Payments and transfers' from the main menu
  3. From the 'Direct debits' section select 'Manage direct debits'
  4. Select the appropriate direct debit from your direct debits list
  5. Select 'Cancel direct debit' and follow the instructions on screen

It may take up to 24 hours for the balance of your account to be adjusted.

If you cancel your direct debit at or after 8.20pm (UK time) on the day the payment is due future payments will have been cancelled. However the payment due on that day will already have been taken and we will not have been able to retrieve it.

If you believe the payment has been requested in error please contact Telephone Banking using the relevant number below. You will need to have your online/telephone banking ID details ready.
