A Bank State Branch Number (BSB) is a number that identifies the bank branch that holds your account. The BSB number is equivalent to a routing number in the United States. The BSB number is a hyphenated, six digit number. For example, the BSB for Bank of Queensland accounts is 124-001. Banks use the BSB to ensure that deposits and transactions are routed to the correct bank and account number.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Look for the BSB number on your bank statement. The number is usually found in the top right corner of the statement, above your account number.

  2. 2

    Look at the numbers at the bottom of your checks. The first group of numbers is your account number; the second group of numbers is the BSB number. You can also find the BSB in the same location on deposit slips.

  3. 3

    Call your bank and ask for the BSB number.

Tips and warnings

  • You can also try checking your bank's website: many banks will post their BSB information online.
