Open Banking

With your consent, we use Open Banking to review your income and expenditure, speeding up the assessment process and saving you time. Open Banking is safe and secure, quick and easy. For more information on Open Banking, click here.

If we cannot use Open Banking, you will need to supply us with copies of your last 3 months bank statements, before we can consider your application. The bank statements must cover the 3 months up to the date of your application, and must include your name and address*. Poor quality or incomplete copies cannot be accepted, and will delay your application. Open Banking is therefore the quickest, easiest and most secure way to provide us with the required income and expenditure information.

* If your address (or name) is different to the one on our system, we will need to see a recent, official proof of address document like a bank statement or utility bill before considering your loan application.
