Paper-free is a way to receive electronic statements and/or correspondence for eligible Credit Cards, Current Accounts, Savings Accounts and Personal Loans.
It's the secure and convenient way to cut down on your filing and find the information you need in one central place – to view, print and download whenever you need to.
If you don't choose to go paper-free, you’ll still receive paper copies.
View, download and print your statements safely and securely online, 24/7 (subject to maintenance periods).
Search your Current Account and Savings Account transactions by date, amount or payment type. You can still order paper copies of your Savings Account and Current Account statements in just a few clicks. The first copy of each statement is free for paper-free customers. But for Credit Cards, there's a charge for it.
It's now even easier to print your online statements:
You can access your account statement in PDF format from your Digital Inbox going back to January 2018.
