Audit confirmations

From 11 December 2023, to standardise audit confirmation requests, we’ll only be able to accept requests made using the ‘Bank Confirmation Request Form (for audit purposes)’ or Requests made in other ways will not be processed .

When auditing an HSBC customer, we can help make it simpler for you to request for bank confirmation for audit purposes with two options:

  1. Online through – the most efficient, environmentally sustainable option
  2. By post – with the choice of receiving our report by email, courier or ordinary post
