What is a BIC code?

A SWIFT code - sometimes called a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions globally. The SWIFT code is a standard format for BIC - Business Identifier Codes.

If you transmit money internationally you nearly 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 BIC code a bit like an international postal code. A bank on one side of the world finds the right bank on the other side of the world. Similar to how sending a postcard to the wrong ZIP/postal code means it might go missing, the same goes for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
