What do SEPA, IBAN and BIC stand for?
SEPA stands for Single Euro Payments Area. This is the name given to the new unitary regulation for national and European payment transactions. IBAN (International Bank Account Number) is a number that replaces all national account details (such as account number and bank sort number in Germany). BIC (Business Identifier Code) is an internationally standardised bank code (similar to the bank routing code) which clearly identifies payment providers around the globe.
