How it works

HSBC Easy makes it simple to switch your salary, investments and regular transfers to your new HSBC account.

We'll ask your old bank for a list of all your regular transfers and withdrawals – from tax payments to utility bills – and let the organisations know your new banking details. We'll also send a copy of the list to you.

It will take up to 12 business days to set up your new payments. The exact time will depend on how long it takes the organisations to process your new banking details. They have 10 days to make the changes and let you know.

Things you should know

  • keep funds in your old account to honour existing payments until you're sure they've been transferred to your new account
  • make sure you've credited money to your new account before you stop using or close your old account
  • keep a record of your old bank account details and regular payments 
  • check your details at any time by logging on to online banking and going to 'My information'
