All transactions with SFA will be deducted from the approved GIRO account. GIRO deduction from your designated bank account will be made every Friday for the previous week's transactions. If the deduction falls on a public holiday, the deduction will be made on the next working day. Please ensure that you maintain sufficient balance in your bank account to facilitate the deduction. If the GIRO deduction is not successful, a failed GIRO notice will be sent to you.
A monthly GIRO statement consolidating the list of successful GIRO deductions will be sent to you in the following month.
