I'm trying to search what payments I've made to a particular company in the last couple of years. I was expecting to be able to just search on their name; but not so, just have to trawl back month by month.hmm

I'm with HSBC .
Do you bank with someone who offers online statement search ?

I would have to trawl through all mine. Have you tried calling, they may be able to do it on their computer system.

Could call them, but I was just really surprised to find that there wasn't a search facility.

Is this still normal ?

What do you mean by a search facility.

Do you mean a search for payments by entering a payee's name?

You can search by month or date on mine. Do you know the rough month at least?

Can't understand why you can't access your past payments?

Have you gone into the section where you set up payments and clicked on recipients already set up?

I have a few friends that work for that bank if you want me to ask them for you?

Yes Randall, just want to type eg. "amazon", "waitrose" and get an ordered list of all payments to them in last 6 months, year.

I can search mine by word or date, but only three months at a time. I would be seriously ticked off if I couldn't.

cumfy Wed 05-Dec-12 13:57:58

Cheeky, I can go through my statements month by month.

cumfy Wed 05-Dec-12 13:58:46

Fuzzy which bank are you with ?

cheekybaubles Wed 05-Dec-12 14:01:24

Yes, but what happens when you go into the section where you set up a recipient or standing order? Do you not get a list of companies and people?

SquirtedFrankinScentsInStable Wed 05-Dec-12 14:06:36

download them into excel and search there.

cumfy Wed 05-Dec-12 14:07:24

Cheeky, it's not a standing order.

GoldQuintessenceAndMyhrr Wed 05-Dec-12 14:08:29

Ah, DnbNor in Norway are great, you can search for Payees, time period, everything.

cumfy Wed 05-Dec-12 14:09:48

Squirted, is that definitely available with HSBC ?

spoonsspoonsspoons Wed 05-Dec-12 14:10:14

I can - Natwest.

RandallPinkFloyd Wed 05-Dec-12 14:12:11

Can't with HSBC and as far as I'm aware they can't either.
It's just a case of looking through stx sorry.

cumfy Wed 05-Dec-12 14:20:49

Better setup a DnbNor acct then.grin

SquirtedFrankinScentsInStable Wed 05-Dec-12 15:55:09

sorry cumfy. dont know. thought they all did it. grin

Can download into a csv file, save jn excel and search away! You can definitely do this with HSBC.

ChocHobNob Wed 05-Dec-12 16:23:32

Yes, on Natwest, although they've recently changed their site and I found it more difficult to find the facility.

TeamBacon Wed 05-Dec-12 16:30:26

Yes I can, for the last 10 years. Was v useful when looking up credit card payments for a PPI claim.

cumfy I bank with Lloyds tsb

DP has this facility with Ulster Bank, I believe all divisions of RBS use the same online system so perhaps that would be a good option for you

I don't think you can with HSBC but I think you can download transactions in spreadsheet format and sort them from there
