There is one confusion in the minds of people who want to close an account. And that is what if I need an account again with the same bank? Will it take me as a customer again? The answer to this question is most of the time Yes, you can reopen a new account with the same bank.
But in some special cases if the bank may refuse from giving you a new account. This totally depends upon how was your relationship with the bank. And how well you have used the account, following the terms of the bank, etc. Before closing the account you need to prepare your account to be closed.
The first thing you have to do is check the balance that you have in your account. You have to make sure that there is no negative balance in the account. If you have any then you will have to clear those. The bank will not allow you to close the account until you clear the dues.
The second thing is about taking care of the automatic payments and the direct deposits that you are active in your account. You will have to cancel all the payments and deposits. And set them up with your alternative account. If you don’t do this then all your payments will start failing.
