GIRO (General Interbank Recurring Order) is an automatic secured direct debit payment method between the banks.
GIRO is COMPULSORY for all students for the payment of all MISCELLANEOUS FEES and OPTIONAL for all the OTHER FEES. This decision of the Executive Council aims to facilitate administrative processing and cope with the volume of transactions.
If you are a new parent:
When do GIRO deductions happen?
Only invoices billed to the family will be paid by Direct Debit deduction on the due date. In case of companies subsidizing school fees and/or canteen fees, kindly take note that the related invoices will be issued directly to the company’s name, and therefore, DO NOT trigger any GIRO deduction on your own bank account.
A confirmation email is consistently sent to parents/companies at least 4 days before the deduction date.
In case of bank account changes
You may terminate your GIRO arrangement directly with your bank.
In case of student’s departure from IFS
Your GIRO arrangement will be available by default during the entire period your child(ren) are enrolled at IFS. If your child(ren) is(are) leaving the school, you may terminate the arrangement directly with your bank.
Guardians linked to 2 different family accounts
Guardians who are linked to 2 different family accounts (in the case of blended families) must identify the family account on which they wish to set up the GIRO arrangement, on condition that they are identified as a payer. Due to technical reasons, it will not be possible for a payer to have the same GIRO arrangement under 2 different family accounts. Kindly contact the Finance team if you have any questions.
