There are two sides to SEPA Direct Debits, the Debtor side and the Collector side. The Debtor side has their account debited by a third party and the Creditor side is collecting from an account of a third party.
For the Debtor side of a B2B SEPA Direct Debit a mandate has to be registered with the Debtor Bank. Only after the mandate has been registered, SEPA Direct Debits can be processed. BNP Paribas Netherlands processes mandate registrations within 5 workdays after receiving a fully completed and duly signed document per e-mail.
Below a mandate template that is issued by ‘Betaalvereniging Nederland‘ that can be used for registration:
