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 8 working days.
Switching to KBC
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.
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)
Remember to do the following
1. Inform those making payments to you
Check who makes regular payments to you. For instance, that could be your employer, benefits agency (for unemployment or child benefit), health insurance fund, tax authority or pension service.
The following documents will make things easier for you:
- Wage assignment form (in Dutch) for your employer
- Model letter (in Dutch) for others making payments to you
2. Move your direct debits
If you pay recurring expenses like your electricity, Internet, TV or insurance bills by direct debit, use this notification of change of current account document (in Dutch) to inform the suppliers. They will then send you a mandate form, which you should sign and forward to us.
Your savings accounts and investments
If you want to fully switch to KBC, you can also move your savings accounts or investments from your old bank. However, you’ll have to switch those yourself. The staff at your KBC branch will be pleased to help you.
