The Current Account Switch Service makes switching your current account between your old bank or building society and Danske Bank simple and stress-free. We’ll transfer all direct debits, standing orders, saved payee details and regular payments.
This is a free and simple process, guaranteed to be completed within seven business days.
If your new bank or building society agrees, bank accounts that include an overdraft can switch using the Current Account Switch Service. And if you’d like to have an overdraft with your new bank account, speak to your new bank or building society before starting your switch. Your new bank or building society will be able to advise if you’re eligible for an overdraft, dependent on their lending criteria and your credit status.
