Greater Bank is one of the customer-owned banks and mutual financial institutions based in Hamilton, New South Wales, Australia. They operate at 59 locations as of August 2020 according to their Wikipedia page. This guide is for those customers of the Greater Bank who want to close their bank account. The steps that are to be followed by the customers to close the account are very simple.
The matter is just that there are certain procedures that should be followed while closing the account. I have explained everything that you need to know while closing down your bank account. Only the account holder has the right to raise the request to close the account. So you have to make sure that you personally visit the branch or call the customer care of the bank.
If you send someone else to close your account in Greater Bank. Then the bank won’t close your account. While closing your existing account you have to make sure you have an alternative bank account to use. If you don’t have then you need to open a new one. And for this purpose, you can consider banks like AMP Bank, CommBank, Bank of Queensland, Bendigo Bank, National Australia Bank, ANZ Bank, Suncorp Bank, Bendigo Bank, etc.
Once you have opened a new bank account in another bank. You have to transfer your funds from the Greater Bank account to your new account. But this should be done on the day you are going to close your account. Don’t do it well in advance. The major condition you have to meet to close the account is your account should not have any dues pending or negative balance. If you have any then you have to clear them before closing the account.
