Payment can be accepted for all waterways at Head Office, Caledonian Canal office and Crinan Canal office by cash, debit or credit card. Please have your customer number and invoice number to hand. Head office Mon – Fri 10am – midday and 2pm – 4pm. Caledonian and Crinan Mon – Fri 8.30am – 4.30pm. 

BACS 

Payment can be made by BACS, CHAPS and Faster Payment. Bank details will be provided on your invoice or by contacting the local Waterway office. 

Direct Debit 

Direct debit payments may be available subject to a credit check. We accept direct debit instructions for the full fee providing the total fee is more than £500. You may pay in 12 equal instalments. We cannot accept part payment by other means once you have signed up for direct debit payment. Once you have set up a direct debit instruction, we will automatically collect payment in respect of the renewal unless you advise us not to. We will make reasonable efforts to notify you in advance of the payment dates and amounts. If the application is received in time, the payment will be collected on the licence or mooring start date. Otherwise we will collect if as soon as possible thereafter. To cancel a direct debit instruction or change any of the bank or building society details you must send written notification to you bank or building society and our Finance Department at our Head Office in Glasgow giving at least seven days’ notice. Please note that we can collect payment from only one bank account per customer. If you have any other direct debit arrangements with Scottish Canals please ensure that they all relate to the same account. 

If we are unable to collect a payment because of insufficient funds in your account you will be contacted and asked to make alternative arrangements for the missed payment. If a second payment is missed we will automatically cancel your direct debit and all outstanding amounts will become due immediately. If we do not receive the outstanding amounts due your licence and/or mooring may be terminated and action will be taken to recover any debt. We may refuse to accept payments from you by direct debit in future. Direct debit defaults are subject to a 10% handling fee and you may also incur legal costs if we have to instruct solicitors to recover the debt.
