Must read: KBC and Bank of Ireland

KBC is set to close and exit the Republic of Ireland. The bank will continue contacting customers giving them 6 months’ notice to close their current accounts.

In December 2022, a deal was approved by the Irish Minister for Finance allowing KBC mortgages and loans to be transferred to the Bank of Ireland. This is due to happen in early 2023.

KBC current accounts are not part of this deal and will close, leaving existing customers with no other option than to switch to another bank.

We will update this review with information as it becomes available. If you need to find a new bank, you can compare your other current account options here.

Verdict

KBC is set to close its business and exit the Republic of Ireland in the coming months. If you’re an existing customer, it’s time to switch banks. KBC is due to start contacting customers requesting that they close their accounts and look elsewhere within 6 months.

With this in mind, it’s definitely a good idea to see what other current accounts are out there.
