A recipient is the person you’re sending money to – it could be yourself, a friend/family member or a gas company (for example) if you’re paying a bill overseas.
To add a recipient you’ll just need their basic information and an IBAN or their account number and sort code.
An IBAN (International Bank Account Number) is the number of your overseas account. It will vary between banks but should appear on your statement. If you aren’t sure of the IBAN on your account, your bank should be able to tell you.
A SWIFT or BIC code helps us identify the bank that you’re transferring money to. It consists of 8 or 11 characters, and you may need to provide it to complete your transfer. If you aren’t sure of the SWIFT or BIC code for your bank, just get in touch with them and they’ll be able to help.
A Transit number is a combination of Institution number and Routing number.
Sometimes banks display Institution and Transit numbers as a Routing number. A routing number for electronic payments contains a zero (called the "leading zero"), a three-digit financial institution number and a five-digit branch number.
Routing number format:
YYY - Institution number
XXXXX - Transit number
For example, if a bank’s routing number is 026011242, the Institution number is 260, and the Transit number is 11242.
An intermediary bank is a bank that acts on behalf of the recipient bank. Payments will reach the intermediary bank before being credited to the recipient (the person or entity who will ultimately receive the payment).
The intermediary/correspondent bank is a third-party bank used by the recipient bank to facilitate international transfers and settlement of funds.
Please make sure you’ve entered the account number without any spaces or dashes. If you’re still unable to retrieve the details please contact us on +44 (0) 1736 335250.
