What is a BIC code?

A SWIFT code - sometimes called a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks and financial institutions globally. SWIFT codes are a standard format for Business Identifier Codes - commonly referred to as a BIC.

If you transmit 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. 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 code means it could get lost or returned, the same thing can apply for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/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 financial institutions who are actively 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.
