Closing your account at your old bank

If you want to close your account at your previous bank and transfer all the money on it to your new KBC account, tell us on your application. We’ll do the rest.

What you need to do

1. Inform those who regularly pay you

Check who makes regular payments to you like your employer, benefits agency (for unemployment or child benefit), health insurance fund, tax authority or pension service. Make it easy for yourself by using our wage assignment form to inform your employer and this model switching letter to advise others who make payments to you. 

2. Move your direct debits

If you pay recurring expenses like energy, phone or insurance bills by direct debit, send all your suppliers a completed change of current account notification. Sign the mandate forms they give you and send them to us.

3. Fully switch to us and move your savings and investments too

If you have savings accounts and/or investments at your current bank, you’ll have to switch those yourself. Want to avoid a pile of paperwork? Ask at your KBC branch how you can do just that.
