BIC Code in bank master for SEPA requirements

Former Member

Hello experrts,

we are currently running R/3 4.7 and I have a question regarding the maintenance of BIC code in bank master data. From next year on, payments inside Europe can/will be made according to SEPA requirements. One requirement is to provide the BIC code and IBAN for the tayment transfer.

Now in bank master data there is already a field for SWIFT code. Is it enough to maintain SWIFT? Because there is no separate field for BIC. Will the SWIFT flow into the payment document and represent the BIC?

In short words: Is SWIFT = BIC?

Dear Reiner,

thanks for your "swift" reply. We will then start to maintain SWIFT in bank master. Would like to stay in contact with you when starting the SEPA functions during next year, if you don't mind?

Mit freundlichen Grüssen
