Making payments from overseas

We are a member of SWIFT banking network which means that we have the ability to transfer money from overseas into any Yorkshire Building Society account in the UK. The overseas bank needs to know three things on top of the information you would normally need to transfer money within the UK - our SWIFT code, and your International Bank Account Number (IBAN) and Bank Identifier Code (BIC). The IBAN and BIC codes contain your sort code and account number in a format that is recognised abroad.
