Some UK banks and building societies have said they'll close the accounts of customers who live within the European Economic Area (EEA). This may result in some of our customers being unable to continue to receive payments into their current UK bank or building society accounts. Our records show you're a non-UK resident and therefore you may fall into this category.

 

It's worth noting that there may be financial implications associated with Brexit, including increased banking fees when transferring funds outside the UK, regardless of which option you choose.

Changing from a UK to an international account could also change your tax status in the country you are resident in. For these reasons we recommend you seek advice as to the best course of action for you. 

If you do need to change your account details, allow plenty of time for your new account to be opened. Once you send us the details please allow 14 days for us to process the change. Taking prompt action will help ensure we have time to process the change before your next payment is due.
