What is a BIC code?

A SWIFT code - or SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions globally. SWIFT codes are a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC).

If you send money internationally you nearly always need to use a SWIFT/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 a ZIP/postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT/BIC code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Just like sending mail to the wrong ZIP code means it might go missing, the same goes for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
