What is a BIC code?

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

If you transmit money internationally you nearly always need to use a BIC code, as it’s the way banks, financial institutions 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. Your bank can use the SWIFT/BIC code to find another bank on the opposite side of the world. Similar to how sending a postcard to an incorrect ZIP/postal code means it may get lost or returned, the same applies for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT look like?

A SWIFT code is either 8 or 11 characters in length:

AAAA BB CC DDD
