Bank Switching Service

Switching to KBC

Switching to us is easy with the free Bank Switching Service. Simply choose when and we’ll move your current accounts and all your regular payments to us. We'll look after all the paperwork so you don’t need to worry about that either. Virtually everything will be sorted for you in 10 working days.


1. Open a KBC current account

Do it online or in a KBC branch near you.


2. Fill in your application

Download your application (in Dutch) to switch banks and fill it in.  Add a copy of each signatory's ID card.


3. Send us your application

  • By e-mail
  • Or send everything via a message in KBC Touch or KBC Mobile
  • Or send an e-mail to a KBC branch near you
  • Or make an appointment at a KBC branch near you

Closing your account at your old bank

If you want to close your account at your previous bank and transfer the balance to your new KBC account, tell us in your application.

In step 1, tick the appropriate box:  

  • 'closing previous current account' 
  • or 'switching payment orders and closing previous current account', if you also want to transfer your planned payments (e.g., standing orders)

We’re here to help

Notify payers

You’ll want payments likes ones from your employer/unemployment benefits agency, child benefit fund, health insurance fund, tax authorities or the National Pensions Office to be paid into your new account. We’ll happily arrange that for you.

If you’d rather inform everyone yourself, you can easily specify that on your application form. See more to help you sort things out yourself.

Move direct debits

If you pay regular bills by direct debit, there’s even no need to contact the likes of your Internet provider (Telenet, Proximus, etc.) or electricity supplier. We’ll be glad to get in touch with them for you. If you’d still prefer to do that yourself, just tell us on your application form.

Your savings accounts and investments

Totally want to move to us? Great! You can also move your savings accounts, investments and pension savings from your former bank. You’ll have to switch those yourself, but help is still at hand. Contact KBC Live and they'll be happy to tell you the best way to do this.
