A BSB code is the Bank/State/Branch number, and is the popular term for a Bank Identifier Code (BIC) used among banks in Australia to transfer funds. It is a six-digit code identifying your city, bank, and branch. With this simple code, Upwork's bank can route funds to any registered bank in Australia.
Each bank's individual branch has its own BSB code, so it's a good idea to check with your bank to make sure you use the correct code. If you provide us with the BSB code of your bank's head office, your payment will get routed to your branch based on your account number and account holder information. However, this extra step might result in a delay in receiving your funds, so we encourage you to make sure you provide us with your branch's correct BSB code.
You can usually find your bank's BSB code on your monthly or quarterly bank statement. If you're not absolutely sure you have the right code, call your bank to confirm.
