Current Account Switch Service
We take care of everything and guarantee to complete your switch in seven working days, finishing on the day you choose.
- All your incoming and outgoing payments will be transferred and guaranteed.
- We’ll arrange for your old bank to close your previous account and transfer any credit balance to your new Bank of Scotland bank account. This does not include Client Money.
