What is the quickest way to receive money from outside the UK?

The fastest way to receive a payment from outside the UK is through an electronic transfer. To receive a payment you will need to provide the sender with the following information:

  • Our registered address: The Co-operative Bank plc, Po Box 1011, Balloon Street, Manchester, M60 4EP
  • Our SWIFT/BIC code: CPBKGB22
  • The IBAN (International Bank Account Number) for your account (this can be found on your statement, or when you log into online banking)
  • You may also need to give the sender your sort code and account number if they're sending money from a country that doesn't use IBAN.

We will send you a letter confirming receipt of any payments made through our cross-border payments system, showing the amount received and any deductions made from the original amount requested.
