Certificate of deposit
The guidance the Home Office issues to its staff confirms that a certificate can be accepted if:
- It was issued no more than 31 days before your date of application; and
- It shows that the money has been held for at least 28 days
This means that the certificate of deposit must have been issued within 31 days of the date of application and at least 28 days must have elapsed between the date of the deposit and the date of issue of the certificate.

The certificate must show that the funds have been held for at least 28 days before the issue date of the certificate. UKVI will not consider funds held after the date of application.
