Commonwealth Bank Swift Code

Swift Code or also known as BIC is the unique identification code of the bank used to identify individual banks around the world. It is particularly used for the purpose of receiving or sending International Money Transfer (IMT) from any other external bank or institution or to any other external bank and institution around the world. It is a series of numbers and is equivalent to Australia BSB code. This BSB or Bank-State-Branch code is a 6 digit number used to identify banks and branches within Australia. This code can be of range between 3 and 23 digits depending on the country of the operating bank. Commonwealth Bank BSB and account number can be found on the regular bank statement or on the cheque book of the bank.

IBAN is mandatory in some countries to identify a customer's account when making International Money Transfer. However, IBANs are not used in Australia, but for certain reasons or if payments are being received from IBAN mandatory countries, senders may need to provide the IBAN number. For this, Commonwealth Bank customers will combine the BSB and the account number and send it to the sender. One should note that there should not be any space, dash or hyphen between the BSB and account number.
