The presentation of traditional accounts numbers in standardized IBAN format simplifies the recording, transmission and processing of payment data.
Since many years, the Swiss financial institutions have been supporting the use of the international standard on credit and debit advices, account statements, payment slips, card products, in direct debit processing or e-banking.
The IBAN inquiry enables individual IBAN calculations of conventional bank account numbers from Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
The electronic tool is most suitable for companies to calculate the IBANs of proprietary Swiss and Liechtenstein bank account numbers.
"Electronic Banking Internet Communication Standard" (EBICS) is an Internet-based communication protocol for payment transactions between corporate customers and banks. The standard has grown increasingly important in the Swiss financial center in recent years.
The present EBICS standard recommendations for the Swiss financial center have been supported by Swiss financial institutions since 2016. Its use by the institutions in Switzerland is voluntary.
The recommendations for EBICS Version 3.0 will be supported by Swiss financial institutions from November 2021. The availability of this version for the migration of earlier EBICS versions (2.x) must be coordinated with the individual financial institutions.
SIX contributes to the creation and further development of the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA).
