Close a Bank Account

This service is available across Italy

Who Can Benefit from this Service?

This service is designed for expatriates, residents, or individuals with banking relations in Italy seeking to close their Italian bank accounts. 

It is particularly suitable for those transitioning to new financial institutions, handling a deceased relative's estate, simplifying their banking needs, or relocating from Italy.

Who Can Benefit from this Service?


To initiate the closure of a bank account in Italy, the account holder must have:

  • A valid identification document.
  • The account in a positive balance; accounts in deficit cannot be closed.
  • Closure or transfer arrangements for any linked services like deposits, investments, or loans.

Procedure: Our Approach

  1. Consultation and Planning: Assess the client's banking situation, including any linked debts or services.
  2. Preparation of Documents: Gather necessary documents and complete the bank's account closure form.
  3. Formal Closure Request: Submit the closure request through the chosen method (in-branch visit, registered mail, or PEC if accepted by the bank).
  4. Transfer of Funds: Manage the transfer of remaining funds to a new account, ensuring all direct debits and standing orders are redirected.
  5. Confirmation of Closure: Secure official confirmation from the bank upon successful closure of the account.
