Dear clients,

Please be advised that temporary period for implementation of the unified euro payment system, i.e. SEPA will end in February. Therefore it will be possible to use the account number only in an international format of IBAN as of February 2016.

IBAN is an international bank account number. It has the same structure in all Slovak banks which consists of 24 characters: 

SK 2 characters for country code
nn 2 control characters
nnnn 4 characters for bank code
