Changing banks in Belgium now easier
From now on a signature is all it takes to move to another bank.
All the customer has to do is go to the new bank and it will arrange everything for its new client.
The bank accounts will be transferred and payment facilities set up. The new bank also arranges the fixed payments that go out.
The new bank will also arrange the activation of new bank cards, and the deactivation of the former bank's cards.
However, the entire administrative operation will still take some time but from next year the entire operation should be able to be completed in 8 working days.
