What is a BIC code?

A SWIFT code, also commonly known as a BIC Code, is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions across the world. SWIFT codes are a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC).

If you transmit money across international lines you almost always need to use a SWIFT/BIC code, as it’s the way banks and money transfer services identify where to send money on a global scale. You can think of a SWIFT/BIC code a bit like a ZIP/postal code. A bank on one side of the world finds the right bank on the other side of the world. Like sending post to the wrong ZIP code means it could get lost or returned, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT look like?

A BIC/SWIFT code can be either 8 or 11 characters long:

AAAA BB CC DDD
