Current Account Switching Service - Switch in 7 Days!

The new current account switching service has been designed to let you switch your account in a simple, reliable and hassle-free way.

From 16th September 2013 if you make an application to a new current account provider subscribed to the service they will offer you the following guarantee:

  • If you have money in your old account, it will be transferred to your new account on your switch date.
  • If there are any issues in making the switch, they will contact you before your switch date.
  • Payments accidentally made to your old account will be automatically redirected to your new account for 13 months. They will also contact the sender and give them your new account details.
  • If there are any issues in making the switch, they will contact you before your switch date.
  • If anything goes wrong with the switch, as soon as they are told, they will refund any interest (paid or lost) and charges made on either your old or new current accounts as a result of this failure.
