How switching works

Day 1 & 2

The Current Account Switch Service will contact your old bank and they confirm if the switch can go ahead.

Day 3

Your new account will then be set up and your payments, like your salary and bill payments will be moved across.

Day 6 & 7

We talk to your old bank about transferring the balance over. On Day 7 your balance will then be transferred and your old account will be closed. And that's your switch complete!

How to switch to us

Whether you are a new or existing customer you can still switch into us.
