As of May 2020, banks and building societies in the UK began offering a service called Confirmation of Payee (CoP), that checks the details of a payee before sending funds. The CoP service could reduce the amount of money lost to bank transfer fraud, but banks need to keep their records up to date to avoid generating false reports.
The sort code for every Raisin UK Account is 040048, and Starling Bank only allocates this sort code for Raisin UK Accounts. The account number for your Raisin UK Account is unique to you, and you are the payee for your Raisin UK Account. You can confirm the validity of any sort code through the Faster Payment Sort Code Checker and other sort code registry checking tools. You can also verify the validity of any sort code and account number through sortcodes.co.uk.
If you receive a notification from your bank or building society about the validity of this sort code, we encourage you first to check that you have correctly entered the sort code and account number displayed in your Raisin UK Account. After you have confirmed that you’ve entered the correct details, ask your bank or building society to proceed with the transfer.
