Apart from knowing the correct account number and the name of the account owner where you plan to transfer the money, it is also essential to know the valid SWIFT code. This is a code that comprises 8 to 11 characters in a standard format of BIC (Bank Identifier Code) used to identify a specific bank or subsidiary.
You will need to submit this code when performing either domestic or international money transfers. Banks and other financial institutions also use these identifiers for exchanging information between them.
Suppose you want to transfer some of your monthly salaries to your parents’ RHB bank account in Singapore; the SWIFT code you need to submit is RHBBSGSG. The first 4 characters are identifying the bank, the next 2 characters are specifying the country, and the last 2 characters are the location code.
To ensure your money is delivered to the correct bank account, you will also need to provide the 3-digit code specifying the branch where the account is created.
