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.
An account held by a foreign bank is often referred to as an international account. You can either reside in London or New York or almost anywhere and still open an international current account in the capital of Singapore. There are no physical boundaries to possess an international company account. Or global companies whose ownership or business activities lie outside of Europe like some international nationalities/jurisdictions: Hong Kong, Singapore, etc can open overseas company accounts in Europe.
Moreover, It is remarkably easy to contact service providers and make an online registration for an international current account as long as your institution satisfies the eligible criterias.
Opening and owning an international company account is extremely beneficial for enterprises that do business globally because of the financial advantages and the manoeuvrability it brings.
For example, a large number of costs and fees will be less charged for money remittances by using an overseas current account which no traditional banks can offer. Also, having an international business account helps businesss avoid political risks and put their assets under protection.
In conclusion, an international business account gives enterprises a better, simpler way to make transactions without worrying about hidden fees. Everything that an DNBC Financial Group overseas account offers is completely transparent.
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.

The main differences lie in the location that a legal entity inbusinesss. EU Business accounts are applied for companies that are operating businesses in the EU, while EU international Accounts are opened for entities that run business activities outside of Europe. For example, if your enterprise is licensed to operate in regions within the European Union territory, such as German, Italy, Spain, Sweden, etc. Then the most suitable current account for your institution should be a business account.
On the other hand, financial institutions like DNBC Financial Group also provide money remittance service and international company account opening service for establishments doing business outside of the EU. There are little to no limits for enterprises operating anywhere in the world legally when owning an EU international account.
However, there are some of the constraints on opening EU international accounts in specific regions due to the European commission's charter. Find out more about regional terms and conditions.
At this time, with SWIFT transfer, you can send money online from your Euro account to other accounts in any other currencies.
Production or trade in any product or activity deemed illegal under host country's laws or regulations or international conventions and agreements, including, without limitation, host country's requirements related to environmental, health and safety, and labor aspects.
These prohibited goods would require a special license to operate and would need to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us to find out if you are eligible to open an account with us. Here are some examples from the prohibited list.
- Production or trade in weapons and munitions.
- Human Body Parts and Pathogens.
- Production or activities involving harmful or exploitative forms of forced labor/harmful child labor.
