An easy switching process

We guarantee a smooth switch.

All you need to do is:

  • Open your new current account
  • Pick a switch date
  • Let your new bank or building society do the rest

A smooth switch for you

The Current Account Switch Service makes switching your current account simple, reliable and stress-free. Over 4 million current accounts have been switched so far.

The Current Account Switch Guarantee means that your new bank takes care of closing your old account, moving your balance and switching your payments.

So you don't need to worry.

Start using your new account

On your agreed switch date your new account will be ready to use and your old account will be closed. Your new bank will have transferred all of your regular incoming payments (such as your salary or benefits) and outgoing payments (such as Direct Debits, standing orders, future dated payments and bill payments) to your new account, along with any remaining credit balance. Your saved Payee details will also be transferred over.

Note: future dated payments set up within 7 working days of your switch date cannot be transferred across to your new account.

Need to knows

1. Check you're able to switch

The Current Account Switch Service covers 99% of UK current accounts. The process is the same everywhere so you can feel confident when you switch, no matter which participating bank or building society you choose.

HOWEVER YOU CAN'T SWITCH WITH:

  • A joint account without the permission of both parties
  • Saving accounts
  • ISAs
  • Non-sterling payment accounts.

2. Check you're eligible

Common eligibility examples include having a minimum number of Direct Debits, and a set amount entering the account each month. You'll also need to agree any overdraft facilities you require with them before initiating the switch (subject to eligibility status).

Just in case if anything has gone wrong

In the unlikely event that anything goes wrong, your new bank or building society guarantees to refund any interest and charges you incur as a result of a delayed or incorrect switch. It's all part of the Current Account Switch Guarantee.
