Frequently Asked Questions

What type of accounts can I switch using the Current Account Switch Service?

The Current Account Switch Service is for current accounts only. This includes personal, small business and charity current accounts.

Small business accounts are those with an annual turnover that does not exceed £6.5 million and employs fewer than 50 people. Small charities have an annual income of less than £6.5 million and small trusts with a net asset value of less than £6.5 million.

If you are still unsure if you qualify then please ask your new bank or building society to confirm. If you would like to switch other account types, such as a savings account, you will need to ask your new bank or building society if they are able to help you do this.
