Proof of Personal Bank Account

In order to progress with your loan application you may be asked to provide proof of an active bank account. The documents must be in colour, black and white copies will not be accepted. This account must be a personal account, not a business account.

Please note, some bank accounts do not meet our criteria, for example some do not accept direct debits.  Your business adviser will be able to discuss these requirements with you during your application.

Please note, this must be either a PDF copy from your online bank account or a scanned copy of a physical statement that you have received by post. We do not accept screenshots of your online bank account.
