Bulgarian Direct Debit

Postby Tiarnan » Fri Mar 20, 2009 11:37 am

Hi all
been told by a friend that if I set up a direct debit here in Bulgaria to pay my water and electric bills that not only am I charged....as in at home.....to set up the debit but each debit has a charge as well. As the property I,d be setting it up for has no one in it for 10 months of the year and hence no water or electric used I,d be paying more for the direct debits than the bills.
Is this the case or is there another way to do this. ?

Forget direct debit in Bg. Make other arrangements.

If you have made a good friend of one of your Bulgarian neighbours, then you can leave money with them and they can pay it for you when they go to pay yours. No need to leave any documents with them for this, they just go to the post office on 'lekky pay day' and the lady there will have your bill. We have done this a couple of times when we have been back in the UK on the date that the bill is due in.

There are many people who offer non residents various services similar to your needs I am sure there will be one in your area. There may even be someone on this forum in your area who knows someone.

thanks but we are residents here....its another place we have which is,nt close enough to make going to pay bills every month worthwhile.....and to be honest as the place is empty 10 months of the year I,d pay someone MORE to pay the bill than the bill itself is.
