Hello,

On a bank statement, I understand Bank and Nr, of course, but I don't know what ST strands for. Can someone help me? I know it's some sort of bank identification number.

Thanks in advance:)

    The German bank identification number is called "Bankleitzahl (BLZ)", so I don't think that "St-Nr." is a bank number. The only "St-Nr." I know is "Steuernummer" (tax number). Each company has a public tax number that must be given on all invoices, for example.

    I agree with elroy that more context would definitely be helpful.
    However, I don't think it's "street number" because we usually don't call it "Straßennummer" but "Hausnummer" and the abbreviation for "Straße" is "Str.".

    Tax number seems appropriate here, thanks!:)
