Switching payments

Our switching service helps you get your regular incoming and outgoing payments – like your salary and bills – up and running from your new CommBank account faster. 

It creates a range of letters that you can send to the businesses with which you have regular payments. The letters let the businesses know that you have a new bank account. You can use our switching service for CommBank personal transaction, business and credit card accounts.

1. Have the following information ready to go:

  • Details of your new and old accounts
  • The businesses that your regular payments are made to and received from. We’ve put together a list of popular billers’ contact details so you don’t have to hunt around for them. 

2. Print, sign and send the letters. You can create these by selecting an option below:

Things you should know

1 Remember before you make a decision, you should compare the costs, fees, risks and benefits of your other super funds against Essential Super. It makes sense to consider whether you can replace any insurance cover you may lose upon rolling over, potential costs for withdrawing from other super funds as well as any investment or tax implications. You should also decide which super fund you want your employer to pay your future employer contributions to and complete a Super Choice form if necessary.
