Subject: Revocation of authorization for electronic debits
To Whom It May Concern:
Company Name no longer has my permission to take automatic debit payments from my bank account. I have revoked the authorization that had enabled this company to debit my account via electronic funds transfer. Please ensure that any further automatic debit payments from this merchant are not deducted from my account.
My Name: Your name
Payee Company Name: Company Name
Checking Account Number: Account Number
I have revoked authorization as of Cease Date date for any future debits by Company Name. I would appreciate receiving written conformation that the revocation has been put into effect.
Thank you for your attention to this matter. Awaiting your reply.
Check your contract with the provider for how much notice is required
Cancelling a direct debit or cancelling a contract may result in negative consequences (such as default or early termination fees, or even legal action).
You should also check your contract with the business for how much notice is required. The effective date for the cancellation of the agreement should match the effective date for the cancellation of the direct debit.
Are you also trying to cancel a contract for goods and services (e.g. internet account, subscription, membership)?
You will also need to cancel your contract directly with the service provider you have a contract with. This letter can be generated separately on the Cancel-aid site.
Request your bank to credit your account for unauthorized debit payments
Did you receive a confirmation of your cancellation from your service provider, but money is still debited from your account? Ask your bank to refund the unauthorized debits.
