    switching banks

    Switching banks is easier than you think – deposit your salary and move your debit orders for simple and affordable banking in the new year.

    How to bank better 

        new clients

        Visit your nearest branch with the following:

        • Your original identification document (must be 18 years or older).
        • If you are liable to pay tax in a country other than South Africa we require your foreign tax number.
        • Give your new account details to your employer to deposit your salary with Capitec.
        • Take your latest bank statement along with you to switch your debit orders. Download the Debit Order Authorization from which will be required to switch your debit orders.
        • DebiCheck is another way for you to take control of your money by allowing you to confirm any new debit orders going off from your bank account

        Find out more about the documents you need on our FICA document section.

        • If there are any debit orders we cannot switch on your behalf, we will contact you and let you know

        • Switching your salary and debit orders will take a few days to complete.
