If the DC wants to cancel it
If the Debt Counsellor wants to cancel the Debit Order on behalf of the consumer then BASA ask that the DC attach the following special Power of Attorney Document. Debt Counsellors might already have a clause about the cancellation of debit orders in their current power of attorney documents but may want to add this form or amend the wording of their current forms to match this form.

DCs should consider adding these forms to the packs they give to new clients.
