What is IBAN?
IBAN stands for International Bank Account Number. It contains your Bank Account Number and a new code so that your bank account can be used throughout the EU.
What is BIC?
BIC stands for Bank Identifier Code. BIC codes are specific to each bank within the EU (replacing sort codes). They can be found on your Bank statement or can be requested from your bank.
Where can I find my IBAN and BIC codes?
Your IBAN and BIC codes are available from your bank and can be found on your bank account statement.
What does an IBAN look like?
An example of an IBAN: IE99AIBK90000012345678
|Country Code||Check Digits||Bank Code
(in this case AIB)
|Sort Code||Account Number|
- The branch sort code and your account number are part of your IBAN.
- Irish IBANs will always contain 22 characters and be in the above format.
- The check digits are simply a pair of numbers that permit the arithmetical validation of your IBAN
