What does a payslip check policy actually achieve?

I am in the progress of applying for a top up on my home loan.  For the past 5 years my partner and I have been paid into a Bankwest account.  We have a Bankwest homeloan. We were told first, that we didn't need to supply payslips because of being paid into Bankwest account - great!  Then later that day we were told due to some defaults on the account that we would need to supply payslips becauase it is company policy.


The defaults were due to direct debits between the transaction account and the homeloan.  I have never defautled on a home loan payment.  In fact, my home loan account has always been between $1000 - $5000 in surplus. 


I was told that it is a Bankwest policy that if there is a default that I need to send in my payslips.  My question is, what, at all, does that policy achieve?  Considering my payments have been regular for the past 5 years from one employer, what piece of information in my payslip will help with the desicion making process?
