Where can I find my BIC and IBAN?

If someone is sending you money from outside the UK, you’ll need to give them the Nationwide BIC and your IBAN.

BIC (SWIFT code)

A Bank Identifier Code (BIC) is a standard format used to help identify banks worldwide.

Nationwide's BIC is NAIAGB21.

Intermediary Bank (HSBC) BIC is MIDLGB22.

You’ll need this BIC for someone to send you an international payment, such as a SWIFT payment. This is why a BIC is sometimes called a SWIFT code.


You can't use your savings account to send or receive a SWIFT payment - you'll need to use your current account.


An International Bank Account Number – or IBAN – is used worldwide to identify individual accounts. IBANs make it easier to process international payments. You can find your IBAN in the Internet Bank and on your account statement. Unfortunately, you won’t find it in the Banking app just yet.

To find it in the Internet Bank:

  1. Log in to the Internet Bank.
  2. On the Overview of Accounts page, find your current account.
  3. Select the plus (+) next to your account.
  4. This will open a box that shows your IBAN, which starts with ‘GB’.
Log in to the Internet Bank

Find it on your statement
