IBAN is short for "International Bank Account Number" and is used for international bank transfers - The IBAN is made up of your country code, check digits, bank identifier code, bank branch code and account number.
Your IBAN is usually found on your bank statement. If not, contact your bank branch and they will be able to tell you.
BIC is short for "Bank Identifier Code". A BIC is the unique identification code of a particular bank. These codes are used when transferring money between banks, particularly for international wire transfers.
Your BIC is usually found on your bank statement. If not, contact your bank branch and they will be able to tell you
A SWIFT code is the same thing as a BIC code. The reason, if you're really interested, is because The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) handles the registration of the Bank Identifier Codes, which is why it is sometimes referred to as the BIC or the SWIFT code, but they are the same thing
