Wire Transfer Branch Codes 分支代號

Sometimes for money transfer, or when connecting your Taiwanese bank account to PayPal, you will need the Wire Transfer Branch Code (分支代號). The Wire Transfer Branch Code has 4 digits, and different from the 3 digit Bank Code above. Most of the time different branches of the same bank will have different code. The Chunghwa Post (Post Office) is a notable exception: there are two codes to cover all the accounts, most common is “0021” for the regular checking accounts.

The Financial Information Co. has a search engine (in Chinese), where you can find the correct code for your bank and branch: http://www.fisc.com.tw/tc/service/branch.aspx or check with your bank directly.

See more information on PayPal’s “Add a bank account (Taiwan)” help page: https://www.paypal.com/tw/webapps/mpp/add-bank-instruction

SWIFT Codes

In case of international money transfer, you will most likely need the SWIFT code of your bank account, which is again differs from the previous two identification. Usually every branch has their own code, which is an 8 or 11 character long alphanumeric code: 4 letters bank code, 2 letter country code, 2 character location code, and an optional 3 character branch code (or “XXX” for primary office). For example, the Bank of Taiwan’s Xinyi branch has the code “BKTWTWTP054”.

You can browse for your bank and branch at The SWIFT Codes Taiwan page (click), or Online SWIFT Codes Taiwan page (click), two SWIFT code directories. You can also find there the appropriate codes banks in other countries.
