    Alright guys, I have a standing order for payment protection on a business loan. I want to cancel it, can I just cancel the direct debit and be done with it, or do I need to notify the PPI company I want out?

    Unfortunately, it was sold to me via a financial broker back in 2006, so the bank can't do anything for me, and the company I used doesn't exist anymore.

    It's important to me that cancelling the DD for this doesn't effect my credit rating/score in the form of a missed payment.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    its not the company that refund it, its the bank, if you call up and request a refund for all premiums they should ask you to write in blah blah blah... what ever you do dont use a third party claims company/ soliciters

    The PPI is not supplied by the bank, it's a 3rd party company. I was told I needed to buy this to get the loan through at the time by a broker which doesn't exist anymore.

    Thanks, I might be able to get hold of the guy, he's just not trading under the same name based on my research.

    Cool, I'll be happy just to stop the payments, anything on top is a bonus!

    You can cancel the direct debit any time you want. They will write to you if they want to.

    Were the repayments subject to income tax?
