When you apply for an iwoca loan, we’ll usually need to verify your business revenue.
If you have a Metro Bank account, there are two ways of giving us access to this information.
You can link your online banking to your iwoca account to give us read-only access to your business data, or you can upload PDF bank statements to your iwoca account. Alternatively, you can email them directly to us and we will upload them for you.
Here’s a step-by-step guide for both options.
Option 1. Linking your online banking
You can link you online banking in three easy steps.
Get started by logging into your iwoca account and going to the ‘Business verification’ section, where you’ll find the option to link your online banking.
First, you’ll need to search for the name of your bank. There may be multiple results for the same bank so it's important to double check you have selected the correct account type (Business/Personal/Private).
Next, enter your login details for your online banking account. We do not store or have access to these details - we use a third party service provided by Yodlee, a major data-cloud service provider to global banks.

Once you've added all of your credentials, confirm all the details are accurate and you should be good to go.
Now that you've given us read-only access to your business data we'll use it to make a fast and fair decision on your application.
Option 2. Adding PDFs of your bank statements
- Log in to your Metro Bank internet banking as usual
- Select account (All statements available for a given account will be arranged by month)
- Select ‘View’ to open statements
- Statements will open in a new window in PDF format
- Statements can be downloaded via ‘File’ > ‘Save As’
- Return to your iwoca account and upload the bank statements. If you have any problems, you can email them to email@example.com instead.
Once we’ve got the details we need, we’ll review your application and get in touch when we’ve made a decision.
