Federal Government Reforms - Account Switching
The Federal Government has introduced reforms that aim to make it easier for Australians to switch their bank accounts.
From July 1 2012, the new system will allow people to switch by simply authorising their new banking institution to chase up their direct debits and credits from their old bank.
The aim of the reforms is to allow consumers to switch more easily, without having to be burdened by all the paperwork to do so.
To find out more about how to switch, see our three Switching Steps.
