In less than two weeks' time switching bank accounts will be simpler and easier than ever before.
The new current account switch service, due to go live on 16 September, will see banks and building societies complete the switching process in under seven days.
Under this new free service, all payments going out, including direct debits, and those coming in, such as your salary, will be moved from the old bank account to the new bank account within seven days. The process can currently take up to 30 working days.
Customers will also now be able to select a convenient switch date with their new bank account provider.
Additionally, the new Current Account Switch Guarantee means that customers will be refunded for any interest or charges on their old or new bank account if anything goes wrong during the switching process.
Below is a list of the top bank accounts for switching, based on in-credit interest rates and cash incentives.
