Sort code changes
On 23 November 2017, our sort code changed to 20-78-91.
How does this affect me?
If you make payments into a Skipton account via Standing Order, Direct Debit or Faster Payment, the sort code will update automatically and you don’t need to do anything.
CHAPS and international payments
If you make a CHAPS payment into your account, you’ll need to include the new sort code on the CHAPS form. The same applies to international payments.
International Bank Account Number (IBAN)
When our sort code changed, so did the International Bank Account Number. The new number is GB03BARC20789170798924. This will only affect you if you receive international payments into your Skipton account.
If your passbook contains the old sort code, it will be updated when you next visit one of our branches.
Protect yourself from fraud
During this time of change, it’s important that you are cautious and remain alert to the possibility of fraud:
- treat all letters, phone calls, emails and text messages with caution. Don’t assume they are genuine, even if the person seems to know some basic information about you
- do not give out your account or card details or make changes to payments unless you are certain you know who you’re dealing with
- never disclose security details, such as your online banking password. Any genuine organisation will never ask you for these
- don’t be rushed or pressured into making a decision or acting quickly. A genuine organisation won’t mind waiting if you want time to think
If you have any doubts at all about what you are being asked to do, always use contact details you can trust, rather than details you’ve received in an email or text message
