I authorise each person contained in section 2 “Authority to Operate” to jointly and severally operate all of my
transactional and savings accounts.
I understand that in making this authorisation, the person I’ve authorised can do anything I can do under the
agreement between me and HSBC for all of my transaction/savings account(s), which may include the following:
entering into any agreements with HSBC or another person in relation to my accounts;
make withdrawals and other payments out of the account, including direct debits and other regular payment
arrangements;
giving HSBC receipts and acknowledgements for withdrawals;
negotiating personal cheques and other negotiable instruments;
receiving account statements;
making payments out of the account, and stopping any payments made out of the account;
making deposits into the account;
setting up and removing any online banking capability for me;
setting up online banking capability for themselves over my account(s);
requesting and cancelling debit cards for me;
opening accounts on my behalf;
closing accounts on my behalf; and
anything else an account holder can do under the agreement between HSBC and me.
By authorising each person, I understand all of the following:
I’m liable for what the person I’ve authorised does on the account;
I won’t hold HSBC liable for what the person I’ve authorised does, except where HSBC has been negligent or
committed fraud;
HSBC isn’t required to enquire into the circumstances of any instructions given by the person I’ve authorised;
and
this authority will remain in place until I revoke it in writing (together with any other account holder) and give
this to HSBC, or until HSBC sends me written notice that it has decided to cancel this authorisation.
Jointly and Severally – When we say “jointly and severally” this means that if you have more than one authorised
signatory they can do something on their own or together.
Transactional and Savings Accounts – When we say “transactional and savings accounts” this means all of your
accounts which are not credit accounts (i.e. where we have not lent you money).
