I have noticed a difference in the BSB and Account number format, between the HSBC Australia Mobile Banking App and Online Banking. Why is this?

We have made BSB and account number easier to understand, with the change being made to online banking at a later date. The changes will  make it more convenient for you to see your bank account information at a glance.
