I'm trying to add a new UK based payee but both online and android app only allow input of IBAN and the payee doesnt get added because it complains of no BIC. How do I add the BIC with no option for same?

    Anyway, the issue is neither online or app allow a field for BIC which is the issue.

    Don't need BIC, IBAN is the standard - call KBC, quicker than waiting for an answer here

    Since 2016, KBC are required to accept the IBAN only. See here: https://www.sepaforcor...sepa-iban-rule-2016/. If it's a valid IBAN, KBC need to answer why it won't go through

    Hello howamidifferent,


    Thank you for your query.


    You are only required to enter an IBAN for any SEPA transfers on the online/mobile banking.

    If you get an error in relation to the BIC, Our IT team will need to investigate this for you.

    I can arrange a call back for you with one of our agents if you provide your best contact number through PM, otherwise you can free phone the team on 1800 93 92 44 or abroad on 0035316646100.

    Thank you,
