You can either work out your IBAN based on the example above, or find everything you need by logging into Nationwide Building Society online banking, or checking your bank statement.

If you don’t use the right IBAN number, your payment might be returned or sent to the wrong account. Get it right the first time by checking with your bank, or asking the recipient to provide the details you need, if you’re not sure.

Don’t forget, any IBAN or BBAN account numbers we use in this article are given as examples, and shouldn’t be used to process a transfer.

Do you need an IBAN in the United Kingdom?

Yes. If you’re making – or expecting to receive – an international money transfer to a bank account in the United Kingdom, then just a standard bank account number isn’t enough. If you want your money to arrive quickly and safely, you’ll usually need to give the bank a few extra details, such as an IBAN or SWIFT code.

Banks assign IBANs to each of their accounts to make sure that international transfers are processed correctly.

IBANs contain all of the country, bank, and account details you need to send or receive money internationally. This system is used throughout Europe, and also recognised in some areas of the Middle East, North Africa and the Caribbean.

Banks and other transfer services have a dirty little secret. They add hidden markups to their exchange rates - charging you more without your knowledge. And if they have a fee, they charge you twice.

Wise never hides fees in the exchange rate. We give you the real rate, independently provided by Reuters. Compare our rate and fee with Western Union, ICICI Bank, WorldRemit and more, and see the difference for yourself.
