Looking to switch to B?

It couldn't be any easier to switch to the B Current account. Switching is covered by the Current account switch guarantee and it'll all be done quickly and easily.

Current Account Switch Guarantee

*AER (Annual Equivalent Rate) is the equivalent rate if the interest was paid and compounded once a year. Gross rate interest is the interest payable without taking account of any tax payable. Credit interest is calculated daily on the cleared credit balance in your account. From 6th April 2016 we no longer deduct tax from any interest earned, following the introduction of a Personal Savings Allowance. If you earn interest over your Personal Savings Allowance you will be required to pay any tax due directly to HM Revenue and Customs. Please visit www.gov.uk (opens in a new window) for more information.
