    If you want this payment template to be automatically moved to Commercial Banking Online, you may need to make changes to the following:

    (4) IBAN/Account Number


    Figure 1. Changes to be made to the Euro payment template


    Field name in Corporate Online

    Change to this field in Commercial Banking Online


    Action required


    Debit Account

    A mandatory field to contain the sort code and account number of the account that is being debited.

    The debit account must be an open Lloyds Banking Group account.

    The payment template will not move over if the sort code and account number are not populated.

    Ensure the sort code and account number are populated with an open Lloyds Banking Group account.



    Account Name

    A mandatory field that cannot exceed 35 characters.

    If no data is present the template will not be migrated.

    Any values over 35 characters will be removed automatically.

    Ensure the field is populated. Reduce it to 35 characters or fewer if you don’t want it to be truncated.



    A maximum 2 digits after the decimal point.

    If there are more than two digits after the decimal point, the value will be rounded up to two decimal digits.

    If you do not want this field to be rounded up, reduce to 2 digits after the decimal point.


    IBAN / Account Number

    It is mandatory to enter an IBAN in the IBAN/Account Number field.

    The field must be between 15 and 34 characters in length and contain only alpha numeric characters. 

    The first two characters must be letters and the IBAN must be valid and correspond to a valid EEA or EU country code that supports IBAN.

    This is a mandatory field and must be completed with a valid IBAN.

    Ensure the field is populated with an IBAN that meets the length, format & validation criteria (see table below). 



    This field will be used to populate two separate areas on Commercial Banking Online:

    1. The Debit Account Statement Reference. This will appear on your statement. This field cannot exceed 16 characters.
    2. The Beneficiary Statement Reference. The field length restriction is 35 characters.

    Content will be truncated after the first 16 characters for the Debit Account Statement Reference.

    Ensure the field is populated. Reduce the Debit Account Statement Reference field to 16 characters or fewer if you don’t want it to be truncated.

    Any changes you make will also be reflected on the Beneficiary Statement Reference.
