Consent to SEPA Direct Debit is given by a debtor to its bank. In KB, it can be given in paper form or via KB direct banking solutions (MojeBanka, MojeBanka Business, Profibanka). It specifies the debtor’s account number, creditor’s information, creditor’s CID, Mandate reference (UMR), payment scheme, collection limit, number of days between individual collections, etc.
SEPA Direct Debit Mandate is a written agreement entered into by and between a debtor and a creditor, allowing the creditor to collect funds from debtor’s account. The creditor is required to keep the mandate. Mandate automatically expires 36 months after the last performed direct debit. The bank may request the presentation of an agreed mandate (e.g. for the purpose of service activation or complaints).

Unique Mandate Reference – UMR
