What is a BSB number?
BSB stands for ‘bank, state, branch’, and is a set of 6 characters that identifies where a bank account is in Australia.
National Australia Bank uses BSB numbers to identify the bank and branch holding a bank account in Australia. Each branch has its own code, though some banks also have a single, centralised BSB for all their accounts.
You’ll need a BSB to send money from one Australian bank account to another, or to send money to an Australian bank account from overseas.

Wise is the cheaper, faster way to send money overseas
It’s no secret that the traditional ways of sending money between countries are slow and expensive. In fact, most banks add hidden fees to the exchange rates they offer. So when your money does eventually arrive, it’s often less than you had expected.
When you send money with Wise, you get the real exchange rate — just like the one you see on Google. No hidden fees. No surprises. And on many popular routes, Wise can send your money within one day, and sometimes within seconds.
With just an account number and BSB number, you can send money to and from Australia at the best possible exchange rate.

Format of a BSB number
BSB numbers are usually made up of 6 characters. The first 2 characters identify the bank the BSB is associated with (like National Australia Bank). The 3rd character is a number between 2 and 7, representing the state the bank branch is located in (4 represents Queensland, for example). The last 3 characters identify the individual branch.
Where to find your NAB BSB number
You can find the right National Australia Bank BSB number to use on this page. If you’re looking for your own BSB number, you can also find it in your online banking or on your account statements.
Always check the BSB number with your bank or recipient. If you use the wrong number, your payment could bounce, or be sent to the wrong account.
BSBs, IBANs, BIC and SWIFT codes — What’s the difference?
You’ll need a few details to send or receive money internationally. Here’s a quick breakdown:
BSB numbers identify bank branches in Australia. You’ll need to use one when sending money to Australia with Wise, along with an account number.
IBANs (international bank account numbers) identify individual bank accounts. They're issued by many banks in Europe, but banks elsewhere in the world are starting to adopt them as well.
SWIFT codes identify banks and financial institutions, but this time for international payments. They're sometimes known as BIC codes.
