TV Licencing Direct Debit

  Covergirl 18:59 19 Feb 09

When (just about) everybody else offers discounts for direct debit payments, why does TV Licencing charge extra - like £12 per year for monthly payments?

Oooooohhhhhh . . . . . ! ! ! ! !

I do not. Mind you the complex way they calculate things for new starters may be confusing particularly if the "year" includes any increase in the License fee.

This is what they say about DD

"Over the first six months, you'll pay for your current TV Licence in monthly instalments of around £23. In the seventh month, you'll then start to pay in advance towards your next licence with twelve monthly instalments of less than £12 a month (so you'll make six payments before your new licence is due and six payments after). You'll continue paying for future licences in this way.

but they want £1.25 / quarter if you want to pay it in 4 installments

but it says one option is £5.50 per week !

That would be £286 / year which I can't believe so it must be a pre-payment system as well

you'll pay for your first TV Licence over six months in 26 weekly payments. After this, you can move to fortnightly payments towards your next TV Licence
