but I'm a whizz with swift codes
depends what country
*doesn't bother to look at the ref, heads straight to the tunnel*
what do you need to know?
and they've just sent me a message saying they can't pay me until I provide an IBAN number.
I've spent ten minutes doing a montage sequence like when Homer goes from his Advanced Economics Textbook, to Economics For Dummies, to looking up the word Economics in the dictionary. And now, the next step down even from that - posting on this place.
Basically, how do I go about calculating one for my own account?
is probably most likely the one that isn't sort code or account number.
Thanks to everyone except thewarn and his loose lips
thewarn and His Loose Lips, his unpopular beat combo. I hate those guys
5318008 scrawled on it, asking them to send you a cheque.
A UK one goes GB**** - Sort code - bank account number
I'm not sure how they come up with the GB bit and the few random numbers therafter.
alternatively it might be on your statement like wwwolves said, i haven't really ever checked. they are quite long with both letters and numbers, swifts are the shorter ones (they'll probably need both iban and swift to pay you by the way)
i only ever send money to/from norway and i've always used the swift as well as iban so i just assumed that was the standard. oh well
I'm 99% sure they don't - the yanks don't anyway and some of those other side of the Atlantic punters.
Balonz's prog-metal trio. I hate those guys as well
to indicate what bank it is. like, the iban for my lloyds account has LLOYDS in it (shocking i know) and the hsbc one has something different which is code for hsbc but not actually hsbc
We can never be together
the stars covered a multitude of sins (numbers and letters).
What's your favourite accountancy system Whiterussian? I'm fucking mad for SAP.
I'm just passionate about their systems. I thought we all were.
if so it should be on your bank statement
just interested to know if we know anything about them?
like a LIBAN
