Re: UK Bank Accounts No Longer Offered in EU

I have had a Lloyds current account for over 40 years and have received NO suggestion that they will close my account. They have been aware of my Swiss address for 32 years.

People don't start a thread "My UK Bank still wants me as a customer"...
My account was with Lloyds too until they divested TSB and moved some accounts over. I could have asked to stay with Lloyds but it was made clear that it would be their decision rather than mine. Now of course I wish I had tried.

Do you have any actual evidence of this "most British banks" statement - everyone else believes this is not the case.

And the one link you posted is a counter-example - step one of the Metro bank application:
I would say most, if not all, UK banks require you to be a UK resident and some require you to only be a UK tax resident. Yo can of course always lie and see how that goes.

Re: UK Bank Accounts No Longer Offered in EU

My Barclays account was schedule to be closed in January, because I am not UK resident.

I had my EU address with Barclays. When I phoned in and got customer support to enter my Swiss address I was able to keep the account (for the time being). Their guidance really seemed not very clear about non-UK and non-EU residents.

I emptied the account before deadline though so as to not leave anything to Her Majesty in case the account would be closed nevertheless.
