FAQ - Signing up with an International Bank Account
What is an IBAN?
IBAN (International Bank Account Number) is used as a standard format across the UK, Europe, and many other countries to streamline and standardize international payments.
How do I find my IBAN?
If you don't know your IBAN, you should be able to find it by logging on to your online banking or mobile banking, selecting an account, and viewing the account details. It may also be found on your paper account statement.
Will there be an issue if the name on my Worksuite account is different than the name linked to my bank account?
Please make sure the name associated with your Worksuite account also matches your linked bank account. For example, there may be payment delays if your individual name is listed in Worksuite but your bank account is under your business name. If your name in Worksuite does not match the name on your linked bank account, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
