How to cancel future dated payment:

  • If you have created a UK Payment that has not yet debited your account.
    You have created a BACS Batch Payment that has not entered the payment cycle. The payment enters the payment cycle at various times on Day 1 and debits your account and credits the beneficiary on Day 3. For example, if you create a payment on Monday to credit the beneficiary on Friday, the payment enters the cycle on Wednesday. Therefore you will need to cancel the batch on or before the Tuesday.
  1. Navigate to the Manage payments tab

  2. Select Pending payments ( you can choose to view or cancel a payment)

  3. Click on the payment you want to cancel

  4. Select 'Delete' and your scheduled payment should be cancelled
