Put SEPA to work for your organisation

Single European Payment Area (SEPA) is a borderless system of Euro payments throughout SEPA countries and territories based on a set of common standards, rules and conditions. In 2020, the geographical scope of SEPA schemes includes 36 countries and territories with about 523 million people living there.

SEPA Goals

The ultimate goal of SEPA is to make payments and collections in Europe as easy and cost-effective as domestic payments. The use of XML ISO 20022 under the European Payment Council guidelines increases the standardisation of payment processes and reconciliation, saving time and money during the implementation of payment treasury solutions in Europe.
