So that we can correctly assess your situation, we will need up to 6 months of recent bank statements. We recommend using a secure service from Cashdeck that allows you to send your statements to us in no time - in as little as 30 seconds! No more turning the place upside down looking for your statements or trying to download from internet banking (available for most major lenders).
Simply request your secure link to be delivered via email or sms - remember to provide account statements from each bank you regularly transact with, have a loan or credit card with and receive your income into.
If providing manual bank statements: most official bank statements are for set periods of time. Always send at least 1 full statement (most recent) as provided by the bank (showing the bank logo, your name, address and account number details etc) and if required, send the rest of the statement via a transaction statement ideally obtained from your internet banking or if required by calling your bank customer service team OR attending a branch. IMPORTANT NOTE: Some lenders now enforce providing statements via service as offered above. If you do not use the statement retrieval service above it will take longer to assess your eligibility for a loan and delay preparation of your application for submission to the lender. Please use the statement retrieval service wherever possible. Its convenient for you and saves everyone a lot of time. We will cover all costs associated with the service.
Income details will be used to calculate and confirm your borrowing capacity. This is one of the first steps in the overall loan process.
Keep a look out for an email with a link to complete a short needs analysis and living expense questionnaire. We have made it really easy for you to tell us what you want/need in your loan and to accurately list your living expenses.
-If you require assistance in calculating your living expenses to enter into the questionnaire above, please follow this link: -for a quick calculation (<5min) OR Comprehensive Calculation (up-to 20min).
For all debts being consolidated OR refinanced, we will need:
-Up to 6 months recent statements with one original statement to show the bank logo, full account name and numbers and loan details. Satisfactory on time payments should be evident. Please advise if there is any late payments/fees.
-Some lenders may also need a 3+ months statement for each liability that is not being consolidated OR refinanced to verify satisfactory account conduct.
Feel free to use the bank statement link above to send us your bank statements from participating lending institutions. Car loan and third party credit card providers are generally not available via this service.
For other loans like HECS, HELP etc, please provide evidence of outstanding balance and any other information like repayment amount. If your HECS or HELP debt is paid out BUT your payslip still shows HECS/HELP deductions, please arrange a letter from your employer clarifying the situation AND evidence of nil balance owing available via ATO portal login.
