Issue SEPA direct debit mandate

By issuing the SEPA Direct Debit Mandate, you agree to the collection of a payment due and at the same time instruct your bank to honour the payment.

The amounts to be paid by you can thus be automatically collected from your account at a pre-determined time. This saves you from having to issue new payment orders.

You can revoke your mandate at any time.

Related forms and processes


You have to pay money to another body on a regular or one-off basis.

The competent body offers you the option of having the money automatically debited from your account on the payment date.

Responsible department

The body that asks you to pay.


Depending on the offer of the competent office, you can issue the mandate online or in writing.

If you issue it in writing:

  • Complete the form provided by the competent body.
  • Print it out and sign it.
  • Send the original to the competent office by post.



The SEPA direct debit mandate is valid for 36 months:

  • It expires automatically if no amount has been debited during this period.
  • If the responsible office debits an amount during this period, the 36-month period starts anew from this debit.

You can revoke your mandate at any time.
