Current Account Switch Service

Switching to Handelsbanken is simple and stress-free. You can choose the date you want to switch and the process is completed in as little as seven working days, once your new account is open.

A smooth process

In just seven working days, from your new account being opened with us, we'll transfer any existing balance and payment arrangements for you including: Direct Debits, standing orders, payments that come into your account like salaries, and beneficiaries you already have set up.

Payments are automatically redirected

Any payments made to or requested from your old account will be redirected to your new account. We will also contact the sender and give them your new account details. This means there is no need to worry about missing payments.

Backed by a guarantee 

In the unlikely event that something goes wrong with your switch, we will refund any interest or charges incurred on your old or new account as a result. 

Getting started

The whole process will be handled by us, making it a swift and effortless move. If you have any questions, or for further information, please contact your local branch.

Accounts with overdrafts

Bank accounts that include an overdraft can switch to Handelsbanken using the Current Account Switch Service. If you’d like to have an arranged overdraft with Handelsbanken, please before starting your switch. Your account manager will be able to advise you if you’re eligible for an arranged overdraft, dependent on our lending criteria and your credit status.
