The International Bank Account Number – IBAN is an international standard for identifying bank accounts. IBAN was originally adopted to facilitate payments within the European Union, but today it is one of the basic conditions for automatic data processing for foreign payments. Serbia implemented it on January 1st, 2005 as a technical innovation for facilitating payment operations through the network of foreign correspondent banks.
The IBAN consists of two-letter country codes (ISO 3166-1), followed by a control number (two digits) and up to thirty alphanumeric characters for the domestic bank account number. An IBAN in Serbia consists of 22 alphanumeric codes starting with RS35.
