EUE transfer

If you want to ensure that a value-date compatible transfer within Europe is received by the recipient within one business day, you should use the EUE transfer. This is also called Euro express payment.

The files are transmitted using the AZV order type. If your bank uses the EUE order type to mark Euro Express payments, you can adjust this in the order type field. Whenever these values from the banks are known, the corresponding value is already entered by default.

The data entry for a EUE transfer is basically accomplished the same way as for a domestic express payment (refer to section Other payments - Domestic express payment). One difference is that you need to enter an IBAN instead of the account number and a BIC instead of the bank code. Moreover, in contrast to the domestic express payment, there is no text key.


The IBAN (International Bank Account Number) consists of a two character country code, e.g. DE or FR, followed by a two digit check-number and an up to 30-digit account identification, consisting of digits and the uppercase letters A-Z. In Germany, this is the combination of the 8-digit bank code and the 10-digit account number.

Note: Always ask the payment recipient for this IBAN and do not use the calculation tools found in the Internet. They do not reflect the customized calculation methods used by the banks. This could potentially result in chargeable post-processing or a rejection of the payment.

The BIC (Bank Identifier Code) consists of a 4-digit master, which generally refers to the bank, followed by a two digit country code, a two digit filing number, and finally by a 3-digit branch office code or XXX for the national headquarters. The XXX can also be omitted.

The fields IBAN and BIC can only be edited if Recipient recording is allowed in the preferences under Payment recording.

Note: The BIC is identical to the SWIFT code.
