More than 20,000 customers trust Loqate’s bank validation

More than a bank account check

Our software checks not just the bank account number and sort code, but that an account is direct debit capable and CHAPS supported, too. It also returns the Bank Identifier Code.

Identifies banks across borders

Most European banks can be checked to make sure the correct IBAN and BBAN formats are being used.

Seamless data updates

Results are instant, and our regular updates ensure you’ll always recognise new sort codes.
