In the Philippines, like all other banks in the world uses four (4) common bank identifying codes and these are the following:
BRSTN: a.k.a. Bank Routing Symbol Transit Numbers for Major Banks in the Philippines
This is a 9-digit code that identifies the country, the city, and the name of the bank. It is commonly used as bank identifier code used among banks in the Philippines to transfer funds.
SWIFT: or the “Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication”. Business Identifier Codes (BICs) are often called SWIFT addresses or codes depending on the countries it will be used. In the Philippines, we use SWIFT codes.
The SWIFT code is 8 or 11 characters, made up of:
- 4 letters: Institution Code or bank code.
- 2 letters: ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code
- 2 letters or digits: location code
- The last 3 characters represent the branch code.
IBAN: also known as International Bank Account Number is a number attached to all accounts and is made up of a code to identify the country the account belongs to, the accountholder’s bank and the account number itself.
CHIPS: stands for Clearing House Interbank Payments System and it is originated in the US for funds transfer all over the world.
Note: To avoid inconvenience, it is always advisable to contact your banks to check the bank codes of your own bank before using it to transfer funds.
