A visual confirmation of your bank details are required as part of our validation process and ensures that we’re depositing funds into the correct bank account and that this account is connected to the correct recipient.
Please supply us a copy of an official bank document issued in the past six months that clearly displays all the below information (on the same document):
- Bank name/logo
- Bank account name
- BSB number
- Bank account number
The bank document will either need to be the header from a bank statement or a blank deposit slip. Please note that we don’t need to see any financial information or account balances. You can cover those up or crop them out.
For Australian not-for-profits if your organisation holds DRG1 status, the account name will need to match your entity name or DGR1 fund name.
For international transfers outside of Australia, you will need to provide us a SWIFT/BIC code or if applicable an NCC (National clearing code) or IBAN (International bank account number).
Note that if we’ve had you complete your bank details in a form, you’ll need to ensure that all of the details you provided on that form are present on your visual and that they match exactly.
Common mistakes to avoid:
- sending us documentation that is too small, blurry or otherwise illegible – keep in mind that we need to be able to read all of the details.
- sending us an invoice or other such documentation created by your organisation with bank details on it – remember we need to see documentation from your bank.
- sending us a document that lists a bank account ‘nick name’, bank account type, or mailing address rather than the bank account name.
