Swift Code

A SWIFT code — sometimes also called a SWIFT number — is a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC). Banks and financial institutions use them to identify themselves globally. It says who and where they are — a sort of international bank code or ID.

These codes are used when transferring money between banks, particularly for international wire transfers or SEPA payments. Banks also use these codes to exchange messages with each other.
