Statement Request Letter

The statement request letter is a formal appeal made to the bank for different reasons. Generally, the request is to acquire information about the account. This needs to be composed in a certain way. The content of the letter should focus on the bank details and the requirement from the bank. The account details need to be mentioned explicitly so as to extract the correct information. The tone of the letter needs to be formal. Since it is a request, it is best to use polite expressions. In case of urgency there needs to be explicit mention in the letter.

Sample Statement Request Letter:


The Manager,

Bank of Ohio,

30, Rockefeller Building

Ohio branch

Date: 3.4.11

To whom it may concern,

I, Marian Laugh, am the deputy manager of the “We Care For Solutions Co.”. I have been an account holder for your bank for the past 5 years since 3rd April, 2006. My account number is 3895788972987.

My account is a current account and I would like it if you would kindly send me a statement of all transactions for my account for the last 6 months. I have tried accessing the ATM but, the transactions are limited to only a week. I need to send this statement to the tax authorizes of Ohio by 5th of next week. It is an urgent requirement and I would be very grateful if you could kindly handle this request on a priority basis.

I would also like to refer to the fact that this statement needs to be from the 1st of November 2010 to the present date. It is imperative you look into you my request as soon as possible. I look forward to your response.

I will appreciate a quick reply via email.

Thanking you,

Marian Laugh
