Sort code

Sort codes, in the British and Irish banking industries, are bank codes used to route money transfers between banks within their respective countries via their respective clearance organisations. In Ireland, a sort code is known as the NSC or national sort code and is regulated by IPSO (Irish Payment Services Organisation). Although sort codes in both countries have the same format, they are regulated by different authorities as each country has its own banking system.Sort codes for Northern Ireland branches of banks (codes beginning with a '9') are registered with IPSO for both Northern Ireland and the Republic. These codes are used in both the British and Irish clearing systems.

The sort code, which is a six-digit number, is usually formatted as three pairs of numbers, for example 12-34-56. It identifies both the bank and the branch where the account is held. In some cases, the first digit of the sort code identifies the bank itself and in other cases the first two digits identify the bank. Sort codes are encoded into IBANs, but are not encoded into BICs.
