Why do I need to submit my bank statements through an online login?

Applying

During the application process you will be asked to select your bank account and log in using your credentials, so we are able to access your online bank statements. This is so that Columbus Financial Services Limited can inquire and verify your income and expense information to meet its responsible lending obligations. In addition, this should help us decide on your application sooner.

Once you’ve logged in, you will choose the bank that your main income goes to and expenses go out of for validation. Your transactional data is shared with us securely so that we can verify your income and expense information.

You’ll get an opportunity to confirm whether the figures produced for income and expenses are accurate, before completing your application.
