What is a BIC code?

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

If you transfer money across international lines you almost always need to use a BIC code, as it’s the way banks and money transfer services figure out where the money needs to go. You can think of a SWIFT/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. Like sending post to an incorrect ZIP/postal code means it may get lost, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD

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.
