IBAN information

The International Bank Account Number (IBAN) is an internationally agreed system of identifying bank accounts across national borders to facilitate the communication and processing of cross border transactions with a reduced risk of transcription errors.

The IBAN consists of up to 34 alphanumeric characters, as follows:

  • country code using ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 – two letters,
  • check digits – two digits, and
  • Basic Bank Account Number (BBAN) – up to 30 alphanumeric characters that are country-specific.

If you are a Publisher, and you do not have an IBAN, you may add your standard bank account number instead. If you are unsure whether or not you have an IBAN, or have one but don’t know what it is, please contact your bank directly so that they can assist you.

We have provided some information on IBAN numbers below.
