Repayments for your loan

It is important to take action immediately, if you have not already done so, to redirect your payment instruction for your Loan to PTSB as otherwise, you may miss scheduled payments and this may adversely impact your credit record.
Payment by Direct Debit from a non-PTSB Current Account: You need to take action to set up your new direct debit. Please complete a new mandate form labelled Former Ulster Bank SME Direct Debit Mandate’. Also view our Ulster bank Business Direct Customer FAQs.
Scheduled Repayments from a PTSB Current Account: You need to take action to set up your new direct debit. Please complete the mandate form labelled ‘Internal Repayment Order Mandate’.

Warning: If you do not meet the repayments on your loan, your account will go into arrears. This may affect your credit rating, which may limit your ability to access credit, a hire- purchase agreement, a consumer-hire agreement or a BNPL agreement in the future.
Warning: The entire amount that you have borrowed will still be outstanding at the end of the interest-only period.
Warning: There is no guarantee that the proceeds of the insurance policy will be sufficient to repay the loan in full when it becomes due for repayment.
Missed payment data will be reported to the Central Credit Register (CCR), as required by law, in the legitimate interests of PTSB and the CCR. This may affect your future ability to borrow.
