IBAN-Name Check2.0.3

  • Live
  • Powered by SurePay

Perform multibank checks to verify if customer/supplier name and IBAN match and are correct.


Verify IBAN and name combination

Obtain confirmation that the IBAN-Name combination match before initiating a payment. 


Ensure safe transactions

Prevent fraud and misdirected payments by pre-checking customer data.


Automate processes

Create efficient processes and limit labor-intensive tasks for onboarding and maintenance of customer/supplier data.


The IBAN-Name Check API by SurePay enables you to verify customer or supplier data. 

The API performs an instant check on the correctness of your customer and supplier data (name and IBAN) based on real-time data from Dutch bank accounts. This ensures that payments are made to the right creditor, money is collected from the right debtor, and if the name and IBAN are a match for new customers and suppliers.

The API provides the following checks:

  • Confirmation of the name of the payee: 
              If the payee's name matches one of the names registered at the bank and to what extent.
  • Confirmation on the IBAN of the payee: 
              If the IBAN is valid (active/expired).
  • Information about the account: 
              If it is a business or private account, and the number of account holders. 
  • Switch Check / Overstapservice (optional): 
    Receive a notification when an account holder has switched to a new bank and the
              'switching service' / 'Overstapservice' is active.

The results of the checks are available digitally. They can be directly used in any financial system, for instance, your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software or Treasury Management System (TMS). By integrating the IBAN-Name Check API into your systems, you make your processes more efficient, safer, and reduce the risk of fraud. 

Note: This service covers 99.5% of Dutch bank accounts.
