SWIFT for companies

Communicate with multiple banks via a single platform.

Simplify your cash management

Single interface

Secure data exchange

International standard

The SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) messaging system lets large firms manage their in-country and international transactions and account reports through a single interface, separate from online banking platforms.

The benefits of SWIFT

If your company has accounts with several banks, SWIFT can help you centralize your cash management processes and harmonize your accounting using a standard recognized by the Swiss and international financial industry.

How to connect to the SWIFT network

You have two options:

Connect via a third-party bank

  • Indirect connection
  • You use another bank’s SWIFT connection to request a payment on your behalf
  • FIN messaging service

Connect via SCORE

  • Direct connection with all banks that subscribe to the SCORE service
  • You connect to SWIFT under your own name
  • Closed user group administered by SWIFT
  • FIN messaging service

What we offer

Various messages types (MT) are exchanged via SWIFT’s FIN messaging service, depending on the type of transaction.

BCV offers two message types:

  • Request for transfer (MT 101)
    This message is used to transfer available cash to a central cash-management system or to make a domestic or international payment to a third party. BCV’s role is limited to executing the payment order.
  • Customer statement message (MT 940)
    This message lists all completed transactions and shows how much cash you have on hand.
