If you don't have access to Digital Banking

You can manage your standing order by completing our digital Standing Order form (opens in a new window).

The form will ask you for the email addresses of the people with signing permissions on the account.

We'll then email your signatories and ask them to authorise the request by uploading an image of their signature.
