Ghana Bank Sort Codes is a six digits numerical code used to identify an individual branch of a financial institution in Ghana. It is used to facilitate the clearing and settlement of interbank payment instructions such as cheques according to the clearing zone. The code is also printed on all paper payment instruments.
The 6-digit sort codes are allocated based on pre-defined criteria to identify the bank, the clearing zone in which a bank branch is located and the branch number of the bank.

AA BB CC
- the first two digits (AA) represent the bank’s code.
- the next two digits (BB) represent the code of the clearing zone within which the branch of the bank is located.
