If you pay your bill every month or quarter by Direct Debit, you can change the date of your payment online at My BT. The exception to this is BT Mobile customers, because your monthly allowances are based on a fixed period which can't be changed.
If you pay by Direct Debit
If you pay by Whole Bill Direct Debit, be aware that when you change your payment date, your bill may look a bit more complicated. This is because we'll also have to change the date when your bill is generated, and adjust your charges to make sure you’re still paying the right amount.
For example, if you extend your payment date, we'll have to charge you for the period between the end of your last bill, and the start of your new bill period. This will result in an additional item on your bill.
If you already have a Monthly Payment Plan set up, you can change the date you pay to any time that suits you. You can do this online at My BT by logging in with your BT ID. You can only make two date changes a year.
Alternatively, phone us on 0800 44 33 11 with your account number ready and just follow the instructions. You need to give us seven days' notice to change your payment date.
Other payment methods
These payment methods have a payment due date stated on the bill. This date can't be amended.
You can choose what day you pay your bill if you set up a Monthly Payment Plan, a fixed monthly Direct Debit.
