Utility bills refer to your electric bill, water bill, TV reception bill, gas bill and mobile phone bill. If your employer pays the bills, you don’t need to concern yourself with these. If not, you should check the amounts shown on your various utility bills delivered to you by mail every month and pay them at the nearest financial institution, such as a bank or a post office.
Paying in Person
You can bring your bills to a financial institution and pay in person. Today many banks do not accept such payments at a teller’s counter.
In that case, you can use the automatic payment terminal. You need the bank’s bankbook to use the terminal.
Auto Transfer Payment
You can apply for an auto transfer payment so that the billed amounts are withdrawn from your bank account on the designated date every month. You can apply at the bank or call the billing institution and apply by phone. After you make the arrangement, make sure you remember the payment date to ensure there is enough money left in the account. If you fail to make the payment due to an insufficient balance twice in a row, the service will be suspended. Make sure you cancel the auto transfer arrangement one month before you return to your country or move to another place.
