Can I still switch to you?
Not all banks or building socities in the UK offer the Current Account Switch Service (CASS). We can still help you switch your account and any regular payments to us when we are unable to use the Current Account Switching Service.
As your new bank we will take care of everything, managing the switch process from start to finish. This service is completely free; however it isn't covered by the Current Account Switch Guarantee.
Once you have opened an account with us, we will ask you to complete a simple form and then we'll contact your old bank or building society within two business days to request a list of all your regular payments and regular credits received into your account for the last 13 months. Your old bank or building society should send us this information within five business days.
Once we receive the information from your old bank or building society we will arrange for any Standing Orders, Direct Debits and any regular credits made to your account to be transferred to your new account with us within five business days. We will contact you to agree a date to complete the switch.
Make sure your old bank has your current address. Let them know if you’ve moved house or you’re now living in student term-time accommodation. If any of your address details are out of date, we will not be able to make the switch until you’ve updated them.
If you’re recently married or have changed your name for any other reason, please make sure your old bank has updated your personal details.
Check that your old bank holds your correct date of birth.
To switch to one of our current accounts, make sure the account you’re switching from is a current account.
You will need to have the following available when you’re ready to switch:
