Pre-Authorized Debit Agreements

By: Derwin Wong

If you use pre-authorized debits (PAD) in your business, you should take note that new requirements have been established by the Canadian Payments Association that came into effect on February 28, 2010. You may need to change your existing PAD agreement to comply with these requirements so we recommend that you contact your financial institution to obtain a new form of PAD agreement. PAD agreements entered into before February 28, 2010 are grand-fathered and are exempted from the new requirements.
