Tips for Switching

  • Choose a date to make the switch. This should be one when there is relatively low activity on the accounts.
  • Complete the switching form. This authorises KBC and your previous bank to make the switch.
  • Ensure that the signatories on the form match those which your previous bank has on record.
  • Make sure your payroll system is updated to deal with the switch.
  • Make sure to update your banking details on your invoices, stationery, etc.
  • Make sure there is enough funds in your new and old accounts to cover any transactions that take place during the switch.
  • KBC will contact your previous bank to arrange the closure of your old business current accounts if you request this.
  • Your previous bank will notify the originators of your direct debits operating under the SEPA scheme of your new KBC Business Current Account details.
  • KBC will set up your active standing orders as soon as we receive the list from your old bank.
  • That’s it. You are then up and running with your new KBC Business Current account.
