Do I have to close my old account?
You can choose to switch your current account and close your old account, or switch all your Direct Debits and standing orders but keep your old account open. Just let us know what you want to do when completing your switch application.
Why have my Direct Debits not been switched across?
Your old bank will inform your existing Direct Debit originators located within the Republic of Ireland of your new account details. It is then the responsibilty of the Direct Debit originators to update their records.
If your Direct Debit has not been paid please contact your Direct Debit originator who will be able to help you.
Why has my switch been delayed?
Provided your old details match the personal details on your new account, it takes seven working days for a switch to be completed.
Credits or debits to your old account, for example Point of Sale transactions or cheques may delay the switching process or in some cases give cause for the switch to be cancelled.
