…wanted to add or remove a Partner and the existing Partnership will continue.

Corporate partnerships (between businesses) are complicated arrangements that can only be discussed in branch, if you need help with this or need more detailed information then please contact us.

An update of Partners may terminate the existing partnership. If the change in Partners results in the partnership no longer existing, then the account needs to be closed and a new one opened for the new partnership.

If the existing partnership will continue follow the steps below.

Who needs to visit the branch?

All people who are Partners in the partnership will need to be in-branch. Any removed Partners do not need to be present, provided that you bring a written notice signed by all previous Partners.
