What is a BIC code?

A SWIFT/BIC code is a standard format to uniquely identify banks, non-financial, and financial institutions globally. The SWIFT code is a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC).

If you transmit money across international lines 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 a ZIP/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 an incorrect ZIP code means it might go missing, the same thing can apply for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD

More info about SWIFT/BIC codes

There are 2 types of SWIFT code: live and passive. Live codes are for institutions who are connected to the SWIFT network while passive Codes are used for manual transactions. Passive SWIFT codes will have a 1 as the second digit of the 2 character location code.
