What is a sort code?

A sort code is a six digit number used to identify UK banks. The first two numbers of the sort code typically identify the bank (for example, most HSBC sort codes start with ’40’), the proceeding 4 digits will identify which specific branch that is. When making domestic transfers, you will typically need a sort code as well as an 8 digit account number to implement the transaction. Always double check all aspects of any transaction with your bank – do not rely on this website alone to verify sort codes.
