    Use the day to day spending one as it will have more transactions in it plus will show you have been in the UK as some of the transactions will have place names on them.

    It is also normal for people not to have bills going out of their own account for completely valid reasons e.g. they have a joint account with a partner.

That is why my thoughts are to provide statements for an account I just use for my monthly standing orders and direct debits. It just seems odd as I wonder whether there is this much scrutiny made of applicants applying for permanent roles within a same financial organisation.
    You can be anywhere in the world to have the monthly direct debits and standing orders going out.

    However your Tesco and Waitrose shopping transactions shows that you were actually in the UK.

    Never been asked for personal statements either, and if I was I wouldn't supply. No business of the agency how much activity is in my personal account. When I took a gap year a few years back I provided personal references to prove where I was, which is fair enough.

    Your choice but if that is their policy then you've only got one option left. It's not the agency that are looking at it by the way.

    Some will accept accountancy, or similar, references instead of bank statements, it is unusual they will only accept only the one thing.

    As NLUK says it is then up to you whether you want the contract or not.

    In addition, I have seen people walked from site on a number of occasions, if the right paperwork was not subsequently produced, or if they have been found to be lying during the checks.
    One thing I would say if you are going to have any untruths on your CV make sure they check out and are completely water tight.

    I've worked quite a bit in insurance, banking and financial services and they have taken a ref from my accountant and carried out a credit check. For an investment company I also had to disclose all share holdings. I've never been asked for personal bank statements. I never lie on my CV either .... my CV really is that good

    Default Don't panic - totally normal

    Lot's of contractors leave out bad contracts from there CV. If you rock up to a client site and rapidly realise that it isn't the contract for you (for professional or business reasons) then immediately serving notice and excluding it from your CV is commonplace.

    By looking at your bank statements they are checking to see if you have been paid by an agency for a period that you have claimed to be out of work on your CV.

    They will then be looking for a reasonable explanation. It is easy to explain away these things .

    Would they really want to play forensic detective in this way - I am not so sure ?

    rubbish, Agencies usually pay to your business account and if there are payments on your private account they can still be for your partner if it's a shared account
