Yes, so long as you have an annual turnover that does not exceed £6.5 million and you employ fewer than 50 people. If you are a small trust with a net asset value of less than £6.5 million you can also use the service. If you are still unsure whether you qualify, visit in store or call us on 0345 08 08 508.
All incoming and outgoing payments will be automatically redirected to your new account. Each time a payment is redirected, an automatic message is sent back to the originator advising them of your new account details so they can update their records. Some organisations may contact you directly to confirm your details have changed. If you do not want your new details to be given to someone who sends a one-off payment, you can visit us in store or call us on 0345 08 08 508.
Yes, you need to update them, but you do not need to tell your bank that you are switching to a new bank. Examples include if you have changed your address and not told your old bank.
Yes. You will need to agree any overdraft facilities you require with us. Alternatively, we may be able to provide facilities to help you pay off any existing overdraft you may have, subject to normal lending criteria. If you do not come to an agreement with us you must make separate arrangements to repay your existing overdraft before you switch.
You can cancel your switch up to seven working days before your switch date. If you do want to cancel, speak to us, who can guide you through this process.
