WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Bank Account Switch – Conditions
- Make sure you have enough credit on your new and old account
- Standing orders must be set up on the new account and the existing ones on the old account must be deleted
- Your creditors need the new bank data to issue a new SEPA Direct Debit Mandate
- For SEPA business direct debits we need the mandate to authorize the payments
- It is best to wait about 2 months before you cancel the old account so that no payment is lost
With the help of our account change help we make it easier for you to switch your bank by helping you to identify your payment details so that your payment partners can be informed of the new bank details. Furthermore, we advise you on how to set up your new direct debit mandates and provide you with templates for a quick account termination.
Deleting your old account is not automatically done in the account switching service. As soon as all payment partners use your new account, use the account termination sample.
A SEPA Direct Debit Mandate exists between businesses and consumers and before the direct debit is debited, the financial institution does not check whether the mandate is valid.
So when you change accounts, you only ask your creditors to assign a new mandate without having to contact your new bank.
With a SEPA corporate direct debit mandate, however, there is a payment agreement between corporate customers. This direct debit mandate especially for business customers has to be deposited with your new bank, because it is checked before each execution.
We attach great importance to quick and uncomplicated solutions. Therefore, opening a business account with us takes only 15 minutes. We will then review your options and you can start using your Penta account within a few days.
