Do Thai banks in Nakon bumfuk have sort codes??

Trying to transfer a bit of cash, got all details apart from sort code wifes sister (who is thick as fok) says bank doesn't have a sort code, so got the wife to phone the bank direct and they keep saying you don't need the sort code it's just the swift code you need. She replies yes thank you very much for the swift code which i already have but can you please just give me the sort code aswell. NO HAB is constant reply. Even got her to phone the head office and same sh1t, now i know my Thai bank accounts have a sort code, so basically transferring money to a bank in a nakon bumfuk do i need the sort code or not as i thought i did and am guessing my bank here in the UK will need it to do the transfer and also i was under the impression every bank in the world had a sort code so it could be located. Fully appreciate i could be totally wrong and that a bank in nakon bumfok could be the first bank i've come across anywhere in the world without a sort code.

The SWIFT code identifies the Bank, the Account number identifies the account.

Thai banks don't have a sort code
The branch code is embedded in the account number

So with swift code and account number they can identify the bank, branch and account

Yep, Tetters is right. SWIFT Code, account number (BSB technically- bank & savings branch), and account name also. Not technically required, but a good idea to give the bank name & branch too. Some forms ask for the address, but I just ignore it, or give the town name again.

Now you'll have to learn and BICs and IBANs as well.

Even UK banks don't have sort codes any more.

Yes...and that's all that is required.
All transactions will go through the main BKK branch first [of whatever respective Thai bank]....there is a singular swift code for that bank.

What's a fcuking sort code?

It used to identify the bank and branch back in the days when everything was recorded in big fuck off ledger books.

Sort code
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A sort code is the name given by both the British and Irish banking industry to the bank codes which are used to route money transfers between banks within their respective countries via their respective clearance organisations. In Ireland it is known as the NSC or National Sort Code[1] and is regulated by IPSO (Irish Payment Services Organisation).[2] Although sort codes in both countries have the same format, they are regulated by different authorities as each country has its own banking system
And..
Quote:
International clearance

The British and Irish sort codes are only used for domestic money transfers. If money is being transferred across international borders, an international network is used. Many European countries use the IBAN as a means of identifying bank account numbers, but transfers to, amongst others, the United States and Australia make use of the BIC Codes. Characters 9 to 14 of British and Irish IBANs hold the bank account sort code.[7]
In some countries there is no direct equivalent of sort codes as the bank and branch codes are maintained separately from each other in those countries.[7] Other countries, however, have codes which are equivalent to sort codes, but with formats unique to the country concerned. Examples include:
Germany/Austria: Bankleitzahl (BLZ)
Switzerland: Bankenclearing-Nummer (BC-Nummer)
Australia: Bank-State-Branch (BSB)
Canada: Transit Code
Sweden: Clearingnummer
Ukraine: MFO
India: IFSC (Indian Financial System Code)

Thai banks only require Swift Code and account number

Sort code is actually called "Routing Number" which is not needed as I was told by Kasikornbank

Sort Code - route money transfers between banks within their respective countries

The British and Irish sort codes are only used for domestic money transfers

The first 3 digits of your Thai bank account is the same as the UK sort code.

I want to tfr my uk pension direct to my KBank account but DWP say they need checking code? Banks I asked at just give me the Swift Code which is not what I
want.
Is there anybody out there who gets their uk pension transferred direct who can help me please???

There is no such thing as a checking code.

SWIFT/BIC identifies the bank internationally.

The account number will be in the format 123-456789-0. The 123 is the branch number (the equivalent to the UK sort code) and the rest is your personal account number.

The USA uses routing numbers instead of sort codes

Europe has the IBAN system

DWP need the SWIFT code and your full account number...and NO they are not very clued up.

I have come across this problem also. Just use MoneyGram old chap- ,much simpler. Fill in the form, hand over the money and send the ref number by SMS to the recipient.
