Switching from another provider

The free Current Account Switch Service lets you move your account from your bank or building society to us in seven working days. We recommend a full switch if you’re ready to close your existing business account – if you’re not ready yet, a partial switch might suit you. The full switch option is backed by the Current Account Switch Guarantee 4(PDF, 40KB). Our Current Account Switch Service page has more information.

To switch, you’ll need to give us some basic information, and show us some documents. UK Finance has a guide to what we need.

If you’ve been trading for more than a year, and you turned over more than £400k in the last 12 months, our Business Development Managers can help you switch. Request a call back and we’ll aim to contact you within one working day.
