What is a BIC code?

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

If you transmit money across international lines you nearly always need to use a SWIFT code, as it’s the way banks and money transfer services identify where to send money on a global scale. You can think of a SWIFT code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the BIC code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Just like sending mail to an incorrect ZIP/postal code means it might get returned, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
