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:-
