What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code - also known as a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks, non-financial, and financial institutions globally. SWIFT codes are a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (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 BIC code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank uses the code to send the money to the right bank in another country. Just like sending mail to the wrong ZIP/postal code means it could get lost or returned, the same thing can apply for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
