Difference Between Tyme Bank Branch Code And Swift Codes

Just as the branch and swift codes for Tyme Bank do not carry the same arrangement of numbers and alphabets, they are not the same and do not necessarily have the same function.

Branch Codes are issued by The South African Reserve Bank, which is the Central Bank of South Africa, to all licensed banks in South Africa. With this code, the different banks in South Africa can send messages to each other and identify each other. For banks that have different branches, each branch has a unique code with which you can make transactions.

However, a universal branch code can also be used to transact irrespective of the branch. In the case of Tyme Bank, which does not have branches, they do not have any branch code but just a universal branch code. The universal branch code is used for Electronic Fund transfers and internet banking.

On the other hand, Swift code is used for international transactions. SWIFT is an acronym that stands for Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication. It is used to identify a specific bank, the country, and the branch. When your friends, family, or business partners outside South Africa send money to you, they will need your bank’s swift code.

The first four characters of the Tyme Bank Swift code (CBZA) are the bank code, the following two characters (ZA) are the country code, the next two characters are the location code (JJ), while the last three characters (XXX) represent the branch code. Aside from international bank transfers, the Swift code is also used to exchange messages between banks.
