The payment processing of this currency is considered to be highly standardised.

Currency Guidelines

Besides standard information, it's recommended to mention the beneficiary full physical address in the payment (field 59).

A clear reason / purpose of payment is recommended and consists of a full written description (in English) of the nature of payment to be provided in the remittance information. For example: providing an invoice number without guiding text is considered insufficient and can result in errors or delays.

Example: Payment of travel expenses – invoice n° 123456789

Payments in AUD toward Australia

Besides the standard information, it is important to note that the IBAN format is not in use in Australia and the domestic account number must be no longer than nine digits.

The BSB code is mandatory in order to enable the correct routing of the payment in the domestic clearing.
A BSB code (Bank State Branch) identifies an Australian bank. It is a six digit code which identifies the financial institution (first two digits), the state (third digit) and the branch code (last three digits).

Example of BSB code: 032929

In certain cases, the BSB code could be included within the domestic account number. Please ask your beneficiary to indicate separately the BSB code and the domestic account number.
