Add your bank account number

You need to add your bank account number using this format:

10-1234-00123456-0000 (bank, branch, account, suffix)

You can find your bank account number in your internet banking app or on your bank statement. This may be more numbers than you have, so we’ll add the extra leading zeros to the account number or to the suffix if you do not add them. Your bank account will still be correct.

Add the name on your account

We'll also need the reference number if you have a credit union or building society account.
