IBAN - International Bank Account Number
The International Bank Account Number (IBAN) is a standard used to identify a bank account in international transactions, particularly but not exclusively in Europe.
The use of an IBAN in conjunction with the receiving or beneficiary bank's SWIFT address / BIC code (Bank Identifier Code) facilitates the automatic execution of international payments and ensures correct identification of the receiver's account.
Receiving payments from Europe
If you are a business customer and in receipt of Euro payments from an EU member state, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, you are legally obliged under EU Regulation 2560/2001 to advise your customers of your IBAN and BIC information.
Your local branch or our Customer Service Unit (01-6115210) can answer any queries you may have in relation to your IBAN.

IBAN Numbers (International Bank Account Numbers) are used in a number of countries, but principally in Europe. IBAN numbers are a way to convey, with a single number, all the information required to identify a specific bank account. Although the length and structure of IBAN numbers varies from country to country, their composition follows strict rules. Knowing those rules for all countries enables us to decode the meaning of any IBAN number you provide.
