What help is at hand if I’m moving my business account from one bank to another

To help you with any movement of your business account, the Current Account Switching Guarantee will ensure that your new bank works with your existing bank to arrange for all existing payments (those coming in and those going out) to be transferred to the new account. This includes all regular payments made via Standing Order and Direct Debit. For more information go to:
