Default URGENT - SWIFT code needed for Halifax!


I urgently require the SWIFT code for Halifax. Is it the same for every Halifax customer?

If a company deposits money into my account, in Euros, what charges do Halifax charge to convert this to pounds?

Receiving money from abroad

From the Halifax website:
"Transfers to your Halifax account can be received in currency or sterling. Payments received in currency are converted into sterling and credited to your account. The charge applied to your account depends on the currency and the sterling value of the payment. Please ask for details. A charge will normally be be made by the overseas bank and any other bank involved in the transaction. To ensure your funds are received as quickly as possible you must instruct the overseas bank to send funds via SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) quoting the following details:
Beneficiary bank: Bank of Scotland, Glasgow (SWIFT Code BOFSGB2S)
And your Halifax BIC and IBAN.

Halifax customers can find the BIC and IBAN numbers on the top right hand corner of bank account statements or alternatively, contact us 0800 731 1499."
