Universal Bank Branch Codes (2024 List)

universal branch codes

Making EFT’s and transfers between South African banks can be inconvenient and frustrating for customers at times. Loading a new beneficiary or recipient is not always the easiest process with certain banks and their banking apps. We often find ourselves double and triple-checking the details we enter to ensure the bank account numbers and branch codes are correct before sending a payment.

When using online banking or a banking app, customers usually need to enter a branch code. Several banks have adopted Universal Branch Codes, which means that the universal banking code for a certain bank can be used regardless of which branch the recipient’s bank account is kept at.

We have compiled a list of all South African Universal Bank Branch Codes below so that you can quickly find the one you need. We make every effort to keep it up to date for all banks. If you need to remember these codes, this is a useful resource page to bookmark.
