For people that does fund transfer from one bank to another (whether inter or intra bank transfer), sort code would be required whenever such services is to be executed. Sort code helps in determining the source of an account i.e. the branch and location of an account number where funds needs to be directed especially whenever e-payments is to be carried out.
