An agency located in Spain just informed me that to transfer a payment to my German bank account (Commerzbank) they need my IBAN and swift code. They already have my account number and routing number (Bankleitzahl). What should I tell them?
Thanks in advance, Kim

Ask your bank! Jul 14, 2003

This is a new system in place since 1 July. Your best bet is to ask your bank in Germany. I e-mailed mine (Volksbank) and got a reply within minutes!

You should find your bank\'s SWIFT (BIC) Code and your personal IBAN on your bank statements. There is a new regulation in force concerning bank transfers within the EU (which is now by the way very cheap!).
Hope that helps,
Alexandra

Thanks guys! Jul 14, 2003

Or gals, if you prefer. I just checked my latest bank statement and sure enough it's all there plain as day (except I didn't know that BIC is the same as Swift.

Muchas gracias!

Hi Kim,
What should I tell them?

Your IBAN, I would think...

This issue has been discussed at length in various forums - just enter "IBAN" and search; you'll find quite a few threads explaining what's behind IBAN and SWIFT BIC.

Info is also available on the Commerzbank website.
