NIB and IBAN numbers

Postby laserblazer » Thu Mar 10, 2011 7:54 am

I have some money to transfer and have only be given the IBAN number. The online transfer facility on my bank account requires the NIB. I see on my account that the IBAN and NIB are similar, so can I work out the NIB from the IBAN? Is it simply dropping the PT50 at the front.?

I do a regular transfer and the BIN number is the same as the IBAN but without the PT50, so presumably so.

PT50 is simply the country code, bit like a dialling code
