Amongst the range of services we offer

What we do - Current Account Switch Service

  • We can switch a valid current account within 7 working days from approving your switch application and sending a switch request to your old bank.
  • We will provide updates on how your switch is progressing so you are kept up to date.
  • We will contact you to let you know how to set up new bill payment(s) with us.
  • Under the Current Account Switch Guarantee all payments accidentally paid into the old account will be forwarded and redirected for 36-months after completion of the switch.
  • As part of the Current Account Switch Guarantee should anything go wrong with the switch, we will refund any interest (paid or lost) and charges incurred, as soon as we're told, in relation to either your old or your new current accounts as a result of this failure.
  • We will liaise with your old bank to close the old account and, if you would like us to do so, will transfer any outstanding balance from your old account to your new account.
  • Provide a seamless transfer of all existing Standing Orders/Direct Debits.
