How much you'll likely pay from AprilMSE Tools
Either as credit to the bill or into your bank account, depends on supplier.
It’s an odd way to do it, why not just not take my DD and keep the £66 on my account.
But as above speak to your provider or check your account if you have online access to it.
Current debt ZERO.
(The original intention was that because direct debits would have to go up to cover the increase, the government would help pay some of that increase. But with it all happening so quickly, suppliers haven't had time to review DD amounts and implement the government discount. So the discount has been given priority.)
I'm with EDF too. Like yourself I have also received a £66 credit in my bank account. I increased my DD this month to allow for increased energy costs. The increase isn't by £66 but by what should be enough to cover the increased prices.
There would be so many different adjustments to be made to thousands of direct debits and it would all have to adjusted again in March.
Doing it their way no amendment is needed to direct debits.
Our dd stayed the same. No bank refund.
£66 credit on our account.
Leaving things as they are for the moment. We are a few hundred pounds in credit which will help towards the higher bills expected over the winter.
