What is a BIC code?

A SWIFT code (also known as BIC Code) is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions across the world. SWIFT codes are a standard format for Business Identifier Codes - commonly referred to as a BIC.

If you send money across international lines you almost always need to use a SWIFT 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 code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Similar to how sending a postcard to an incorrect ZIP/postal code means it may get returned, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD

  • AAAA: 4 character bank code.This section can only be A-Z letters.
  • BB: 2 character country code. ISO alpha-2 country code.
  • CC: 2 character location code.
  • DDD: 3 character branch code. Optional. Can include letters or digits. An XXX here would refer to the primary office.
