Do bank in Australia operate with IBAN?
No, IBAN is used exclusively by European banks. To transfer
to/from Australian institutions you need to obtain a SWIFT code
from your bank.
Would be nice if someone could give example of how to complete
transfer on line info.
French bank details mention:
Name of account holder
BASIC ACCOUNT NUMBER
The account in Australia gives me a BSB number and an account
Australian banks do in fact operate with IBAN numbers when
dealing with overseas banks.
According to Westpac - your IBAN number in Westpac is 12 digits
- your BSB and your Account number all together. This is typed in
without any spaces or dashes.
In addition, most foreign banks want a SWIFT code (your
Australian bank will gladly provide one.) Some foreign systems also
want an alphanumeric code as part of the 12 digit IBAN - Best to
confirm with the foreign bank on that one.
