Norwegian Giro and OCR-B Font

A General Interbank Recurring Order (giro) is a payment system that operates like a credit transfer.

The last line on the giro uses the OCR-B font. This is required by Bankenes Betalingssentral (BBS) for use with optical character recognition (OCR) when handling payments from customers. For more information, see the Brukehåndbok Indbetalingstjeneste (NO).pdf on the website.

The OCR-B-10 BT font is generally available from software vendors. In Business Central, Norwegian sales documents use the OCR-B-10 BT font from BitStream Inc. on the giro. For more information, see the website at OCR-B-10 BT.

You can use any OCR-B font, but if other fonts are used, the sales documents must be updated by a Microsoft Certified Partner. Contact your partner for more information.
