Further information and support


Icon expand How the switching process works

Moving your account to us is simple. To help make it easy we’ll...

  • Send you your new cards and chequebook
  • Transfer your salary to your new account
  • Set up your standing orders
  • Request the set-up of your Direct Debits
  • Transfer any credit balance from your old account
  • Arrange to close your old account

And we’ll do it all within ten working days.*

*Occasionally there may be exceptional circumstances beyond our control in which these timescales cannot be met.


Icon expand Ensuring your switch goes smoothly

Choose a time of the month when there is little activity on your account in terms of Direct Debits and payments.

Make sure there are enough funds in both accounts to cover any upcoming transactions or charges.

Ensure your old bank has your up to date details. If you are switching a joint account, the same names should be used on both accounts.


If you are closing your old account:

Return any unused cheques and bank cards when you receive the new ones. Don't use your old cards or chequebook once the switching process has started as transactions that are yet to clear may delay the switch.

If you have a debit balance to transfer, or you would like a credit facility, please agree this with us first.
