The downside of international transfers with your bank
When you send or receive an international wire with your bank, you might lose money on a bad exchange rate and pay hidden fees as a result. That’s because the banks still use an old system to exchange money. We recommend you use TransferWise, which is usually much cheaper. With their smart technology:
- You get a great exchange rate and a low, upfront fee every time.
- You move your money as fast as the banks, and often faster – some currencies go through in minutes.

- You join over 2 million customers who transfer in 47 currencies across 70 countries.

Brazil Bank numbers - FAQs
What are Brazil bank numbers (codigo do banco)?
The Brazil bank number which is most commonly used is the numero do banco or código do banco - a 3 digit code which shows which bank holds a specific account.
Some banks may also allow customers to use the ISPB number - the Identificador do Sistema de Pagamento Brasileiro - when arranging a TED or DOC payment. This is an 8 digit code, which is used in the same way as the shorter bank code, to guide payments to the right recipient account.
What are Brazil bank numbers used for?
Brazil bank numbers are needed whenever you send money from one bank to another in Brazil, or if you make an international payment to an account in Brazil.
When you arrange a payment, you’ll be asked to give some details including the recipient’s name, bank account number and bank code. The bank code is used by the bank or third party provider which processes the transfer, to make sure the payment goes to the correct institution - while the account number and name are used to check the payment lands in the right account in the end.
What happens if you provide a wrong bank number (codigo do banco)?
It’s well worth checking the bank number before you arrange a payment, using the handy online tools available here.
Using the wrong bank code for your transfer might mean that your TED or DOC payment is automatically cancelled, resulting in unnecessary delays. Your money will usually be returned to your account - however, you may still have to pay processing fees.
