Nedbank is one of South Africa’s largest financial institutions that offer services such as wholesale and retail banking, insurance, and asset management services to clients. A lot of transactions take place at the bank on a daily basis and some of such services are internet or online-based. To have a successful transaction online, one of the things you must have handy is your bank code – this can be the universal branch code or the branch code.
If you belong to the class who find it difficult to wrap their heads around the meanings and differences between these codes, you will find a detailed explanation of both of them below.
The Nedbank Universal Code – What Is It All About?
The Nedbank universal code is a 6-digit code designed by the bank to make transactions easy for its customers. Not only that the code is easy to remember, but it also makes it convenient and safe to carry out certain online business transactions without stress. With the universal code, customers do not have to worry about the codes used by individual Nedbank branches when making certain transactions because it serves major purposes. The Nedbank universal code is 198765.
The Nedbank universal branch code can be used by any of the bank’s customers regardless of the type of account the person runs or the branch the person opened his or her account. The code is unique to every Nedbank branch and also crucial to both the bank and its customers. The code makes it easier to process transactions made by customers and also simplifies the process of making payments online.
The Nedbank universal code is 198765 as mentioned earlier and it is issued by the South African Reserve Bank. You can find it on the bank’s website.
Uses Of The Nedbank Universal Branch Code
In a nutshell, you can use the bank’s universal code to do the following:
- Make online payments or transactions
- You can also use it in place of the branch code. People mostly make use of the universal branch code because it facilitates the process of business transactions and is easy to remember.
- The code is internationally recognized, unlike the branch code. So, when it comes to international transactions, the universal branch code is all you need.

Differences Between The Universal Branch Code And The Branch Code
The differences between a universal branch code and a branch code are not really much. However, we would like to point them out for clarity purposes.
- Between the two codes, the universal branch code is more user-friendly. It is easy to remember.
- The universal branch code, which is also called a common code or generic code, makes transactions (whether online or elsewhere) easier and faster.
- Branch codes are not issued by the central bank but the universal branch is issued by the central bank.
- The universal code is used by all the branches of a particular bank while the branch code is specifically designed for one branch. It tells where the branch is located.
- The universal branch code helps people who find it difficult to memorize the branch codes of more than one bank branch.
