Extended industry sort code directory

The most up-to-date directory of UK sort codes


The extended industry sort code directory (EISCD) is a comprehensive database of payments-related information for financial institutions participating in the UK’s Bacs, CHAPS, Cheque and Credit Clearing and Faster Payments schemes.

It provides the most extensive coverage of UK financial institutions and is updated weekly to provide vital assurance against missing out on sort code changes. 

  • Save time and money by detecting errors early
  • Boost efficiency and improve cash flow by reducing the risk of returned payments
  • Perform checks as part of your workflow, either manually or by computer program
