Brexit - What this means for you


We understand you might want to know if Brexit affects your accounts, so we’ve set out a simple set of questions and answers to give you that information. If things change, we’ll update this page.

We have no plans to change the way we service the majority of our customers who are non-UK resident. If you live in the Netherlands and hold a Savings or Current Account unfortunately we can no longer provide or service your accounts. We have written to those impacted to provide details of the timescales and next steps.

We are continuing to monitor the consequences of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.

If we do need to make changes to our products or the way we service non-UK resident customers, we’ll be sure to contact you and give you as much notice as possible.
