Before starting your switch, you’ll need to provide us with:
your old account number and sort code,
your existing debit card number and expiry date. If you're switching a joint account to us, we’ll need the debit card details for all applicants.
You can provide this information as part of your current account application.
We can't switch your current account if you have a joint account with your old bank and your new Santander account is a single account. For more information on how joint accounts work, please see the General Terms and Conditions or the product specific Key Facts Document.
It’s important that the details you give us are the same as the ones held at your old bank, so if you need to update names or addresses for example on your old account, please do this before you start your switch.
EAR stands for Effective Annual Rate and represents the yearly cost of an overdraft, which takes account of how often we charge interest to the account and does not include any other fees or charges. Overdrafts depend on your circumstances and you must repay any overdraft when we ask in line with our General Terms and Conditions.
