What do the letters and numbers mean in the swift code?
A SWIFT code (sometimes known as a SWIFT Number) are 8 to 11 characters long and made of both letters and numbers. You can typically find them on a bank statement or on your bank’s website. The SWIFT code is a format of your BIC (Bank Identification Code), and the two terms are used interchangeably. SWIFTs or BICs are unique identification codes for the particular bank that holds your account.
- Bank code (A-Z): 4 letters identifying the bank
- Country Code (A-Z): 2 Letters representing the country where the bank is located
- Location Code (0-9, A-Z): 2 characters usually comprising of letters or numbers, representing the bank’s head office
- Branch code (0-9, A-Z): 3 digits or letters to identify a unique branch of the bank. ‘XXX’ is typically used to represent the head office
Always check with your recipient or bank
When sending or receiving money, always check the SWIFT code with your recipient or bank.
If you believe you have sent your money to the wrong SWIFT code, get in contact with your bank right away and request if they can cancel before the transaction have been processed. If it has processed already, then you may have to get in contact with your recipient to ask for them to transfer your money back.
