Uk Bank Accounts

Postby jonbar.1 » Tue Dec 01, 2020 10:42 pm

There is much speculation about some UK banks closing current accounts after Brexit ( due to costs involved, apparently)
Does anyone have any idea which UK banks are likely to do this?

It seems to be only credit cards that you cant have? Accounts with debit cards are staying open ? Im sure i read that somewhere?

Thanks Spanish Lad.
I'm pretty sure it includes Current Accounts.
I recently received a circular from my Pension company suggesting alternative ways of having my pension paid if my bank closes the account.

Nevertheless the link you supplied is helpful. Spain hasn't been mentioned individually which is interesting.

Jonbar, could you please post that link to the other thread which, as you have discovered, can be found here:

viewtopic.php?f=41&t=40283

I am going to close this one in order to avoid confusion
