You can refer to our Terms and Conditions for further information.
To receive payment in a foreign currency or from abroad, by transfer directly into your account, you should inform the payer of the following:
A BIC/SWIFT code is like a sort code, used to identify banks and other financial institutions worldwide so money can be safely transferred. Unity uses NatWest to receive transfers from outside the UK and this code will help route payments correctly.
Please note, this is a NatWest BIC/SWIFT code only; Unity does not have its own code for payments.
An IBAN (International Bank Account Number) is an account number that ensures payments reach Unity’s account via NatWest.
Unity Trust Bank customers do not have IBANs for individual accounts.
These details ensure funds can be allocated from Unity’s account with NatWest to your Unity Trust Bank account.
Your account number and sort code MUST be provided as the reference or in the payment details on the transfer request. Your account name should always be quoted as the beneficiary.
