Our dedicated switching team offer a simple and reliable service. With the Current Account Switch Service, we can move everything for you within 7 working days, or you can ask us to move individual payments and balances with the Transfer of Payment Arrangement Service.

We will:

  • Arrange for your old bank to close your previous account and transfer any credit balance to your new Lloyds Bank account
  • Transfer all incoming and outgoing payments within the seven working day guarantee
  • Redirect all payments to and from your old account to your new account for at least three years.

If anything goes wrong with the switch, as soon as we are told we will refund any interest or charges you have incurred on your old or new account as a result of a delay caused by us. This does not cover charges or interest resulting from required tasks you or your old bank do not complete.

For more information:

The Current Account Switch Guarantee ensures your current account will switch on a working day of your choice. Your payments will be automatically transferred and redirected to your new account, and in the unlikely event you incur any charges on your old or new bank account due to an error or delay, you will be refunded in full when this is brought to our attention.
