My parents tried to transfer some money from Austria to Australia and the IBAN just wouldn’t work – unlike what Commbank says on their website.

We ended up trying it all – just the numbers as recommended for the IBAN and appending “AU” at the beginning (as we thought it might be Australia) – nothing worked.

What you need to do is transfer it to AN ACCOUNT and put in the BSB+Account Nr. but NOT INTO THE IBAN field – and that works 🙂

So do not use the IBAN – like in the picture (red box). Click to transfer to an Account (blue arrow).

once you click on Account – you will get a similar screen to this one:

and this is where you input your BSB+Account Number.

Let me know how you go!
