Unique GBP Sort Code and Account Numbers.

#206

you mean an individual local CHF account?

#207

no, it’s a collection account where we have to use the reference number.

#208

e.g. SEPA (…)

#209

Where do I find a short description how to proceed?

#210

How can I see if I have an unique British Pound account number?

#211

If the app shows your name as recipient and no reference code.

#212

Is the German “reference code” the British “sort code”?

#213

No. The references code is a user identifier for pooled accounts.

#214

Do you know the account number for the pooled account?

I can see an account number and a sort code under the British account. Do Non-British user even have an unique British Pound account?

#215

If the app does show your name as recipient, it’s a unique personal account number. If it shows Revolut Ltd, it’s a pooled account.

(Yes, non UK residents can get unique GBP account details.)

There is if you have British citizenship :joy: I plan to maintain regular deposits to a GBP account held with Metro and to have a maxed out ISA to ensure I can retire comfortably

I always had the impression that you guys from Swiss always have the newest and coolest stuff because you are pretty much independent. But I guess you also have your hard time with some things.

I guess grass is not always greener on the other side.

#220

even when your grass is greener than everyone else’s, people can always find something to complain about.

You can get bank accounts if you have a residency within the UK if you’re swiss

Regarding the financial industry the big banks do everything they can to slow down any innovation that doesn’t benefit them. (most recent case is blocking google pay, apple pay, samsung pay to promote their own mobile payment application)
The big banks are only innovative when it comes to creating new fees :joy:
