What is a BIC code?

A SWIFT code - or SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions across the world. The SWIFT code is a standard format for Business Identifier Codes - commonly referred to as a BIC.

If you transfer money internationally you nearly always need to use a SWIFT 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. 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 may get returned, the same thing can apply for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
