Transferring to United Kingdom IBAN


#1

I want to transfer to a UK account using their IBAN, when I go to transfer I don’t get IBAN/BIC options, just Account Number/Sort Code.

Is there going to be any option to use IBAN/BIC details in the future?


#2

You could try to deprive account no. / sort code from the IBAN? GB IBANS are made out of these underlaying numbers.

Sounds like the perfect job for an algorithm built right into the app instead of something to push onto the user.

Well, yes, but most U.K. banks and businesses don’t use IBANs that much, except for SEPA transfers. But since SEPA transfers are costly in the U.K., everybody uses the national standard instead. That’s an edge case.
