IBAN stands for International Bank Account Number and is a number attached to all accounts in the European Union (EU) countries plus Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Iceland. The IBAN is made up of a code that identifies the country the account belongs to, the account holder's bank and the account number itself. The IBAN makes it easier and faster to process foreign payments.
Your IBAN number:
If you are invoicing internationally you need to supply your own IBAN number. The bank assigns an IBAN to each of your accounts. You cannot calculate an IBAN yourself automatically, as each bank might have different methods of registering their account numbers in the IBAN. The IBAN appears on your account statements and on your Business eBanking.
Check if an IBAN is valid
You can check whether an IBAN is valid below.
This check will NOT confirm that the bank account exists, simply that the format of the IBAN conforms to the required standard for the bank and country.
Important:If you use an incorrect BIC or IBAN money may be paid into an account belonging to someone other than the person you intend. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are using the correct BIC and IBAN.
