Following the June 2016 referendum vote to leave the European Union, the UK Government started the exit process by triggering Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union in March 2017. This exit is being referred to as ‘Brexit’.
The UK is due to leave the European Union (EU) on 29 March 2019. Until then, the UK is still a member of the EU. So for the time being, nothing has changed and we would like to reassure you that there will be no immediate impact on your everyday banking services.
On 25 November 2018 the European Council announced that the EU and the UK signed a Withdrawal Agreement for the UK’s departure from the EU on 29 March 2019.
On 15 January 2019 the UK parliament declined to support the UK Government’s Withdrawal Deal for the UK’s departure from the EU. Our Brexit planning continues unchanged. This is because we have been preparing for a number of scenarios including a ‘no deal’ scenario to ensure we can continue to support our customers.
We will continue to monitor the situation and regularly review our plans to ensure we’re ready for Brexit, our aim is to support customers with the same level of service and range of products as we do today.

There are no immediate changes to your everyday banking services while the UK remains a member of the EU.

Our aim is to continue to provide you with the same level of service and range of products as we do today. For further information please go to your bank’s ‘Brexit Hub’.
