Payment processing: Direct Debit (DD): Budget Payment Plan (BPP)
A Budget Payment Plan (BPP) is an easier way for customers to pay their SA tax. Paying by BPP is voluntary and flexible and allows customers to make regular payments towards a future liability. A BPP customer can:
- decide the regular weekly or monthly amount they want us to collect
- choose to change their regular payment amount
- take a break and suspend payment for a period of up to 6 months
- cancel the BPP at anytime.
The advance payments reduce what a customer has to pay on 31 January and 31 July.
Further details can be found in the National Direct Debit User Guide.
If a customer currently owes us money you should advise them to contact the Payment helpline on 0300 200 3822. We will advise them how to bring their affairs up-to-date and how to start a BPP.
