Have just finished chatting with someone at Clydesdale Bank re the process required to close a business bank account for one of our companies. Process simple, write to them, but then he mentioned they then would then send us details of all transactions (statements) for the account for the last five years as part of the process.
Having now got off the phone I suspect this may be GDPR related, send it all out (in paper form not csv) and then presumably delete the records to be compliant.
I appreciate business entities do not close accounts that often, but strikes me that now ,when making the decision to move bank ,one ought to consider one's carbon footprint re the process.
If GDPR is the culprit then it ought to bow its head in shame.
