What is a BIC code?

A SWIFT code - also known as a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks, non-financial, and financial institutions across the world. SWIFT codes are a standard format for Business Identifier Codes - commonly referred to as a BIC.

If you send money internationally you almost always need to use a SWIFT code, as it’s the way banks and money transfer services figure out where the money needs to go. 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 an incorrect 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 BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
