- In this Agreement “we”, “us” and “our” refers to the Payor indicated on the Platform. Words not defined herein have the meanings provided in the SimpleLease Terms & Conditions.
- We agree to participate in this Business Pre-Authorized Debit Plan and we authorize the Payee indicated on the Platform and any successor or assign of the Payee to draw a debit in paper, electronic or other form for the purpose of making payment for goods or services related to our commercial activities (a “Business PAD”) on our bank account indicated on the Platform (the “Bank Account”) at the financial institution indicated on the Platform (the “Financial Institution”) at the times and in the amounts specified on the Platform (as per our instructions) and we authorize the Financial Institution to honour and pay such debits.
This Agreement and our authorization are provided for the benefit of the Payee and our Financial Institution and are provided in consideration of our Financial Institution agreeing to process debits against our Bank Account in accordance with the Rules of the Canadian Payments Association.
We agree that any direction we may provide to draw a Business PAD, and any Business PAD drawn in accordance with this Agreement, shall be binding on us as if signed by us, and, in the case of paper debits, as if they were cheques signed by us.
- We may revoke or cancel this Agreement at any time upon notice being provided by us either in writing or orally. We acknowledge that in order to revoke or cancel the authorization provided in this Agreement, we must provide notice of revocation or cancellation to the Payee.
This Agreement applies only to the method of payment and we agree that revocation or cancellation of this Agreement does not terminate or otherwise have any bearing on any contract that exists between us and the Payee.
The Payee shall use best efforts to cancel the pre-authorized debt (“PAD”) in the next business, billing or processing cycle but shall within not more than 30 days from the notice cease to issue any new PADs.
We understand that we may obtain a sample cancellation form, or further information on our right to cancel a PAD Agreement, at our financial institution or at www.payments.ca.
- We agree that our Financial Institution is not required to verify that any Business PAD has been drawn in accordance with this Agreement, including the amount, frequency and fulfillment of any purpose of any Business PAD.

- We agree to reduce the Confirmation period under Rule H1 to three (3) calendar days pending verification of our identity using a Commercial Reasonable method described in the Rule H1.
