With the Current Account Switch Service, moving your bank account takes just seven working days and you can choose and agree your switch date.
On your switch date we will ensure:
testDirect Debits, standing orders and bill payments are transferred to your new account
testAny money in your old account is transferred to your new account
testYour old account is closed and your new account is ready to use
Any payments will be automatically redirected to your new account after you switch.
We may be able to provide facilities to help you pay off any overdraft, subject to our normal lending criteria. If an arranged overdraft limit is agreed, this may not match that offered by your old bank. If this isn’t the case you must make separate arrangements to repay your old bank or building society what you owe.
Please be aware that if your old bank do receive any future credits, they may keep these to offset what you still owe them.
