Your Al Rayan Bank IBAN and BIC are changing
What are IBAN and BIC?
IBAN stands for ‘International Bank Account Number’ and BIC stands for ’Business Identifier Code’. BIC is also sometimes referred to as a SWIFT Code or Bank Identifier Code. You use these when making or receiving international payments.
How is it changing?
Previously, all Al Rayan Bank accounts shared the same IBAN and BIC. From August 2017, all Al Rayan Bank accounts will have an individual IBAN, and the Bank will have its own BIC. Here is an example of your new IBAN, and new Al Rayan Bank BIC:
Does this replace my sort code or account number?
No, your new IBAN and BIC do not replace your sort code or account number - these are additional codes with extra information to help overseas banks identify your Bank and account number when making or receiving international payments.
Where will I see this new IBAN and BIC shown?
Your new IBAN and BIC will appear on your bank statements from August 2017.
Do I need to do anything?
No, the change will happen automatically. All you need to do is ensure that anybody making an international payment into your account references your new IBAN and the Bank’s new BIC. If you are still unsure, please call us on 0800 4086 407*.
