Loan Application Process

Understanding the key aspects of our loan application process will support a faster decision outcome and a better experience for your client.

We encourage you to contact your BRM to discuss any aspect of the process you are unsure of, or if you have a particular scenario you would like to discuss prior to submitting an application.

Verification of Identity (VOI)

Auswide Bank has to ensure all applicants and guarantors have been identified to meet AML/CTF requirements, as well as the Verification of Identity (VOI) standards for all conveyancing matters associated with PEXA and Australian State and Territories title / land departments.

General Information

To ensure mortgage brokers meet Auswide Bank's requirements, one of the two options must be used for VOI


If you are meeting the customer face-to face physically, you can use MSA IDYou In-Person VOI and complete the Verification of Identity to meet both our AML/CTF and VOI requirements.

MSA IDyou has a remote option that allows you to complete the verification of your customer when you are unable to physically meet them face to face. Your customers can securely send you photos of their identity documents. It is the broker's responsibility to verify their authenticity and arrange a video call with them during which time you will be prompted to take a photograph of them. This is a mandatory requirement to completing your remote VOI.

The preferred, and industry best practice, when prompted is to take a photograph of your customer holding one of their forms of identification up beside their face.

Visit on your desktop, mobile or tablet and log in using your username and password provided by MSA National and select Auswide Bank from the Lender list.

If you require a username and password, go to or if need to reset your password visit

For general information on using MSA IDYou In-Person or Remote VOI visit their website

Australia Post

If the customer is unable to meet face-to-face physically to verify their identity, they can take one of the following forms to Australia Post, along with the correct required identity documents to be identified there. There is no fee to the customer for this service. Auswide Bank pays this fee on the customer's behalf.

Please use the 'Australia Post National VOI form - Auswide Bank

To assist the customer to find their closest participating Australia Post they can call 13 POST (13 76 78) or visit Australia Post’s Services locator website.

If you require any assistance with regards to VOI please contact your Broker Relationship Manager or email us at

Once the application has been submitted in ApplyOnline, the Supporting Documents will be sent to our Computershare validation/ verification system.   

If there are any supporting documents that are missing or do not meet the requirements as set out on our Supporting Documents Checklist the Broker will receive a Missing Information Required (MIR) email listing any documents that they will need to provide or correct.

Once the outstanding MIR documents have been collated by the broker, they will need to be emailed to with only the 9 digit Lender ID reference in the subject line. Once they are received, they will be validated/verified by Computershare.

If the MIR documents requested are not sent to the correct email address we will not be able to progress the assessment of your application.

It is critical that you are aware of the correct supporting documents lodgement process and factors that can affect your application.
