Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) Plan Information
for Property Owners
Did you know that our Due Date Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) Plan offers you an easy, convenient and worry-free way to pay your water wastewater bills?
With the PAD Plan, there is no need to worry about payment due dates or late payment charges. All payments are made automatically, and there are no activation fees. The PAD Plan will automatically deduct the balance owing from your bank account on the scheduled due date appearing on your bill.
How to Enrol:
- Ensure your water/wastewater balance is paid up to date.
- Complete the PAD Plan Form. Click the link at right under Documents for a form, or pick one up at our office.
- Complete the form to us in person or by mail and include a VOID CHEQUE or an Authorization to Withdraw Form from your financial institution.
- Submit the form and VOID cheque in person or by mail to our office.
Any application received that is not completed will be returned to the owner, along with any cheque or bank form accompanying it. If late fees are incurred as a result, they are the responsibility of the property owner.
This payment plan is account-specific and cannot be transferred; e.g., you cannot use the agreement for water/wastewater to apply for PAD for your property tax bill, or vice versa.
You have certain recourse rights if any debit does not comply with this PAD Plan agreement. For example, you have the right to receive reimbursement for any debit that is not authorized or is not consistent with this pre-authorized payment. To obtain more information on your recourse rights, contact your financial institution or visit Payments Canada at www.payments.ca.
If a payment is returned by the bank for any reason, a service fee of $50 will apply. This returned payment, including all service charges, will NOT be resubmitted through the PAD and must be paid separately by cash, cheque or debit to the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury. The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury has the authority to cancel the PAD Plan due to an excessive number of returned transactions.
If you wish to change, cancel or withdraw from the PAD plan, notification must be sent to our office in writing at least five (7) business days prior to your next scheduled withdrawal. Click the link at right under Documents for a form, or pick one up at our office. This same form can be used if you need to inform us of changes to your personal information, such as name or phone number.
