What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

A SWIFT code - sometimes called 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 - commonly referred to as a BIC.

If you transmit money across international lines you almost always need to use a SWIFT/BIC code, as it’s the way banks, financial institutions and money transfer services figure out where the money needs to go. You can think of a SWIFT/BIC code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT/BIC code to find another bank on the opposite side of the world. Like sending post to the wrong ZIP/postal code means it might get lost or returned, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
