For example, the sort code 20-27-41 refers to the Durham branch of Barclays Bank. When you enter a sort code into the above sort code checker tool, you can view information on that bank branch, such as its location, contact details, and what kind of payments it can accept – Direct Debit, Faster Payments, CHAPS, and others.
