What are the switching stages?
Your new account is already up and running. We’ll contact your old bank or building society to arrange the switch. We’ll let you know that they have approved your request. Then we can start transferring your payment arrangements, direct debits or standing orders across to your TSB current account.
It takes just a couple of days longer for us to transfer your payment arrangements and make sure your TSB current account is ready for the big switch date.
If you have a debit balance outstanding on your old account and want to clear some or all of it, you’ll need to make sure that there’s enough money in your new TSB account to cover the transfer that we’ll make for you on day seven.
Your switch will be complete. Your balance will have been transferred and your old bank or building society account will be closed. You’re all go with us at TSB.
For at least 3 years after your switch, any payments sent to or requested from your old account will be redirected to your new account.
How to start your switch
When you apply to switch to us, we'll ask for:
details of the bank account you want to switch from
the account sort code and account number
the debit card number and expiry date
You can request to switch when you apply for a current account online, or at any time after.
The Current Account Switch Guarantee ensures your current account will switch on a day of your choice, your payments will be automatically transferred and redirected to your new account, and in the unlikely event anything goes wrong with your switch, we will refund any interest and charges (incurred on your old or new current accounts) as a result of this failure as soon as it’s brought to our attention.
