Enter the correct information in each of the 3 fields your bank provides for you; 'Particulars', 'Code', and 'Reference'.

Enter surname, a space then initials or company name only. Limit 12 characters.
Debtor Account Number from the top of the invoice.
This is a four digit number followed by a decimal point "." then another two digits. There is no alpha characters.
Some banks may not allow the use of a decimal point. If this is the case for your bank, replace the decimal point with a blank space (e.g. 8888.88 or 8888 88).
Use the sample below to ensure you enter the correct Debtor Account number on the invoice.
- Please do not make one transfer for several accounts- for example, three rate accounts, a water account and a dog registration.
- Please split the payment with the appropriate payment particular and reference details to ensure that it is paid to the correct account.
