Paper-free, or paperless, is a way that you can receive electronic statements and/or correspondence for eligible credit cards, loans, current accounts and savings accounts.
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 will still receive paper copies.
For more information read our paper-free terms and conditions.
You can now receive some correspondence for your current and savings accounts to a Digital Inbox. You’ll still receive a paper copy unless you opt into paper-free, and the online version will look exactly the same as the correspondence you receive in the post.
If you choose to go paper-free we’ll stop sending certain letters by post and send you an email when you receive a new item in your Inbox. You can switch back to paper correspondence for some or all of your eligible accounts at any time.
Please note: We’ll never alter or delete any of the documents in your online Inbox without giving you prior notice of any changes.
If you want to start or stop your paper statements it couldn't be easier through Online Banking. Sign in and select ‘Your profile’ from the toolbar at the top of the page and choose ’Turn on paperless statements’.
It’s now even easier to print your online statements:

Your Digital Inbox is where you will receive electronic versions of the letters that you would normally receive in the post.
If you opt into online correspondence or statements we’ll stop sending certain letters by post and send you an email when you receive a new item in your Digital Inbox.
The online version will look very similar to the letters you receive in the post.
