Switch to a Royal Bank of Scotland business bank account

Let us take the headache out of switching

What can I expect to happen?

Asset 1

Day 1 and 2

The Current Account Switch Service will contact your old bank and they confirm if the switch can go ahead.
Asset 4

Day 3

Your new account will then be set up and your payments, like your salary and bill payments, will be moved across.
Asset 2

Day 6

We talk to your old bank about transferring your balance over.

Day 7

Your balance will then be transferred and your old account will be closed. And that’s your switch complete.
