A Bank State Branch (BSB) number is a numerical code that identifies an individual branch of a financial institution within Australia. This six digit number plus your account number is what we use to identify your account.
The BSB number is made up of three parts:
The first two numbers (AA) specify the financial institution.
The third number (B) indicates the state where the branch is located.
The last three numbers (CCC) are the unique identifier for a branch.
|01||ANZ||Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd|
|03 or 73||WBC||Westpac Banking Corporation|
|06 or 76||CBA||Commonwealth Bank of Australia|
|08 or 78||NAB||National Australia Bank|
|11||STG||St George Bank|
|12||BQL||Bank of Queensland|
|34||HBA||HSBC Bank Australia|
|2||Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales|
|5||South Australia & Northern Territory|
Therefore, the BSB number for the Bankwest store in Albany, Western Australia (which has the identifying number 001), would be 306-001.
AA = 30 (Bankwest)
B = 6 (WA)
CCC = 001 (Albany)
At Bankwest, the BSB number forms the first six digits of your account number. i.e. 306-001 1234567. You can therefore find your BSB number by checking out the account number printed on your statements, or by logging on to Bankwest Online Banking.
