What is a bank code?

A bank code is a series of numbers that is used to identify banks around the world, for example:

  • BSB (Bank-State-Branch)
  • BIC (Business Identification Code)
  • SWIFT Code (standard format of Business Identification Codes)
  • CHIPS (Clearing House Inter-Bank Payment System) – US and Canada only
  • NCC (National Clearing Code)
  • BSC (Bank Sort Code)
  • IFSC (Indian Financial System Code)

For some countries you may need more than one bank code and/or an International Bank Account Number (IBAN).
