Martial Arts billing and fee collection can often be a time-consuming task, but our Direct Debit fee collection system takes away all the hassle and admin of collecting fees by cash or Standing Orders, giving you more time to focus on teaching.

It even helps you to maintain a steady cash flow allowing you to budget your monthly finances more easily.

Read more information on collection of class fees.

Direct Debit is a suitable solution for recurring payments like training fees for regular students. If you need to arrange one-off payments such as events or merchandising, this may not work for you. However, NEST Management offers alternative payment solutions for these situations which our team would be happy to discuss in detail, simply contact us today.

Yes, NEST Management are proud to be regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The FCA regularly review financial companies to ensure that they are treating customers fairly. So, you can be confident you are working with a legitimate business and crucially – that your money is safe.

Yes! The Direct Debit bulk change process allows you to move all your existing Direct Debits easily between providers, and NEST Management will be there to assist you every step of the way.

Absolutely. We will be able to work with your existing Direct Debit provider to get all your active Direct Debits transferred over to us without you having to do anything at all.

The Direct Debit Guarantee offers protection to customers paying by Direct Debit in the rare event that there is a payment error.

If a customer receives a refund from their bank they are not entitled to, they must pay it back at the organisation’s request. Any dispute resolution takes place outside of the Direct Debit scheme. Whilst NEST Management is not liable for any indemnity requests your business may receive, we will assist with the process of dispute resolution should this service be required.

Any issues you have we can help you work through them and resolve them safely, securely and professionally. 

It takes 3 working days to set up a new payer and to collect from payers on an existing Direct Debit agreement.

Unlike payments by credit or debit card, Direct Debits are not instant. Once a payment request has been sent to the student’s bank, it cannot be amended or recalled either, this is a standard procedure for DD payments.

NEST Management will collect all your monthly Direct Debit payments and any other payment/transactions made through our services, and deposit them in one monthly instalment made directly into your nominated bank account.

Your payment will be deposited into your account on the 25th of every calendar month. Should this date fall on a weekend, it will be deposited on the last working day before this date.

There is no maximum amount for Direct Debit collections through NEST Management, however there is a minimum of £5.00 per agreement.

Direct Debit collections take place on either the 1st or the 15th of the month. Should these dates fall on a weekend or bank holiday, then payment would be debited the following working day. You can nominate the month in which you would like your student’s payments to start.

Once the agreement has been signed by the payer and set up, any change to the payment date must be requested/agreed by the payer. If they have sent you a request to change the collection date, just forward us the request and we can get it changed ASAP.

Yes. The Direct Debit agreement allows you to increase or reduce payments either on a one off or on an ongoing basis. You can request a price change through our Club Management System (myMA) on either the student or agreement records. Or you can call/send an email, quoting your school ID and agreement/payment reference number to our customer care team.

As we are regulated by the FCA, we need to provide the payer with 10 working days’ notice of any price change. So, if you are planning to make a change, let us know ASAP so it is processed in time for the payer’s collection date. Any requests received after the cut off, we will action for the next payment collection date.

Prices and changes are linked to an agreement. If you have more than one student on an agreement, please ensure you provide us with the new price for the entire agreement. This will prevent any confusions and issues in the future.

NEST Management will not accept price changes from payers. If a change is required, this must be requested from a member of your team. Any payer requesting such a change will be directed back to your club. This ensures your students’ fees are always set at the correct rate.


We provide purpose-built websites and booking widgets to ensure a premium online experience for all your prospective students so they can book lessons easily. Customers can book and set up from any web-enabled device. Every payer receives an email and text message with a link to set up their agreement.

Your club will even be listed on our Martial Arts Hub – Get Into Martial Arts  www.getintomartialarts.com to boost your business’ visibility online and give you additional brand awareness.

Due to strict rules around Direct Debits, each customer MUST fill in their payment details themselves. You will set the price and guide them through the process (with our help if needed), but the customer must complete all information and agree to the Terms and Conditions themselves.

Yes, if you want to offer a payment break for a customer, this can be arranged. We can offer up to 3-month payment suspension on a Direct Debit agreement. Like price changes, NEST Management can only action suspension requests received from a member of your team.

If a customer’s monthly instalment fails, we will continue to attempt recollection of a failed Direct Debit up to 4 times. However, it is important to note that NEST Management is not a debt collection company, if we are unsuccessful in collecting the payment, we will let you know and recommend you speak to the customer directly.

Your customer can provide notice to yourself or NEST Management directly to cancel their Direct Debit. Our standard Terms and Conditions explain that a payer will remain liable to pay Tuition Fees for the calendar month in which notice is given and for the following calendar month.

If you would prefer that we did not request notice from your customers, please let us know and we can remove this requirement from your agreements.

TELEPHONE: UK: +44 (0)115 945 5030
EMAIL: enquiries@nestmanagement.co.uk

Any customer that cancels their Direct Debit without notice (where required) will receive correspondence from NEST Management advising of their outstanding commitments. We will also advise you of all cancellations to ensure no training occurs without payment.

If NEST Management is not informed of fees paid in class, we will automatically attempt recollection of any monies due by Direct Debit. Confirmation of payment in class must be provided by a member of your team.


Yes. We want you to get off to the best start possible and to do that, you need everything!

We can start setting you up as soon as you join NEST. We will help your bulk transfer your existing Direct Debits to us, set up your classes on our Club Management System (myMA) and build you a lead generating website and pro shop (if required). We will also provide you with resources and system training so you can get stuck into as many products as you like.

Because of our simple pricing, there are no additional fees or bolt on’s – you will get access to everything from day one.

We’re dedicated to ensuring we are up to date with everything you need to be legally compliant within an ever-changing industry. We will provide you with all the documentation you need to have peace of mind and ensure we will always guide you in the right direction.
