It's often printed on bank statements and looks like GB99 RBOS 1234 5612 3456 78

If he cant find it anywhere, best to contact his uk bank and ask so there's no gulp errors made

I had the same issue when I set up a US account and wanted to transfer some GBP into it.
I simply contacted the US bank to get the correct IBAN number.
