    Follow the instructions below or get in touch with our dedicated District Customer Support team.

    1. Once you’ve logged on to District, select ‘Payments,’ then ‘Create Payments’.
    2. Enter the payment you wish to make, including the payment type. You can save these payment details along with other payments you have set up by ticking the box. If you leave the box unticked, the payment will be saved and can be authorised individually
    3. If you have sufficient access, you’ll be able to save the payment as a creditor. You can then use the Creditor ID (short name or reference) for future payments.
    4. You’ll also have the option of creating further payments or you can progress with authorising the current payment.
    5. If you can authorise payments alone you can do this straight away. If you operate two jointly, the person providing the second authorisation can access the ‘List of outgoing payments’ and choose to authorise the payment.
    6. You can authorise payments with your password, which counts as your digital signature.

  • What is the maximum limit for transferring money on the Business App?

    What is the maximum limit for transferring money on the Business App?

  • How does the Currency Converter work on the business apps?

    How does the Currency Converter work on the business apps?

    The currency conversion tool shows exchange rates for more than 25 currencies and can convert prices instantly.
    This exchange rate tool always uses the Danske Bank Exchange Rate (UK), applying the 'sell' rate for foreign cash. Where the conversion is between two non-sterling currencies then the rate used will be a 'mid-market' rate. The Danske Bank Exchange Rate (UK) is subject to change, and the currency converter is for indicative, information purposes only.

    You can also phone us to talk through your business currency needs as an alternative option.
