SWIFT - Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication.
Transaction orders are transmitted between members of this network.
Each member is identified with a unique SWIFT/ BIC code.
To this day, SWIFT is the biggest and most efficient tool for international money transfer, with over 11.000 member institutions in over 200 countries, sending over 5 billions financial messages globally every year.
A Business Account is made for commercial or business purposes. It can perform more transactions in one day with a higher transaction limit. A Business Account has all the functions of a Personal Account. In short, if you are interested in running your business effectively with the best possible support, you should choose to open a DNBC Financial Group Business Account.
At DNBC, business account opening is as easy as opening a personal account with a dedicated Relationship Manager to guide you through the process, which would make it as simple as it can be. So there is no reason to use a personal account if you want to startup or currently run a business yourself.
SWIFT works by assigning each member institution a unique ID code that identifies the bank name, country, city, and branch.
For example DNBC Financial Group BIC code is: DSFE LT 21 XXX
Here's an example BIC code: DEUTDEFFXXX. Let's break it down:
Bank code: DEUT - This represents the bank. In this case, it's Deutsche Bank. Country code: DE - This is the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code representing the country where the bank is located. In this example, it is Germany.
Location code: FF - This code defines the location (city) of the bank's head office. Here, it is Frankfurt. Branch code (optional): XXX - This part is optional and used to identify a specific branch of the bank. In this example, the 'XXX' indicates that the code refers to the bank's head office.
So, the example BIC code DEUTDEFFXXX represents Deutsche Bank's head office in Frankfurt, Germany.

If there are change not related to CEO or board of directors, we can change it in the account details but if there is a CEO change, the process of changing would be a little complicated as below:
Your business needs to inform DNBC Financial Group of the new CEO information, we will then prepare an identification process for the new CEO, he or she will have to complete a short interview with us to complete this process. After the identification process, we would have all the necessary information of the new CEO in our system and we can proceed to change the authorised person of your company account to the new one, and remove the old CEO access to said account. This process may seem long and complicated but we only need information and a short interview from your CEO and we will get everything done for you.
However, we suggest that you should go through this process before the new CEO change is made official just in case there are any problems relating to this change.
