What is the meaning of V/D on my account statement?

V/D is short for Value Date and is confirmation of the date that we received your funds and from which date you will receive ‘value’ or interest. In some instances it may be different from the date that appears on your statement as this is the date the transaction occurred on your account.

Why is the interest explanation note on some statements appearing differently?

There are 3 ways that your interest may appear on your statement depending on the account and the type of transaction:

1. Account Rollover - The Credit from the total interest is shown on one line and credited to your account. There is also a line below ‘Interest – Capitalise’ which highlights that this credit is worked out by taking interest less Dirt = credit

2. Interest at Maturity - The Credit from the total interest is shown on one line and credited to your account. On the following line of your statement the DIRT is deducted. The final line shows the NET interest paid from your account.

3. Account Closure - If you have closed your account or are moving to a different product the interest entries will appear on individual lines. This includes the interest credited to your account. On the following line the DIRT amount deducted and the NET interest repayment that was paid from your account. The final line shows the closure of your account and balance paid from your account.
