Standard Bank South Africa Departments not available on Confirmation.com


The majority of Standard Bank South Africa confirmations can be facilitated through Confirmation.com. There are however a few departments that are in the process of being on boarded and have thus not launched on Confirmation.com as of yet. Should an auditor want a confirmation from any of these departments, they would need to contact the department directly. Confirmation.com is constantly adding bank departments onto the system and will notify auditors once these additional departments have launched. Please refer below to a list of email addresses that can be used to send a manual paper request to the bank.

Standard Bank South Africa Form Setup Instructions


Depending on how information can be extracted from the bank systems, a form can be set up in 2 ways:
 
  • Individual account basis
    The bank can only extract form details on an individual account basis. Auditors will therefore need to set up each account number as a separate form of the form type.
  • Entity wide basis
    The bank can extract form details on an entity wide basis. Auditors can therefore send a single form of the form type using a main account number. As information is supplied on an entity wide basis all other account numbers do NOT need to be supplied.
