1.2 Certificate of Entitlement - File Numbers
Provision has been made for the file numbers appearing on Certificates of Entitlement to contain a maximum of 15 digits. Presently 12 are used. The new Certificate of Entitlement file number is made up as follows:-
- the first seven digits are the normal 7 digit file number (please see Chapter 2);
- the eighth digit is a check digit;
- the next four digits are the current DSH application number; and
- the last two digits are spare for any future needs.
This file number is essentially an identifier for the Bank.
An example of a file number as it will appear on the Certificate of Entitlement is shown below:-
