A New Beginning for European Payments

Now that the SEPA end date has passed, and the additional transition periods that were allowed in some countries have come to an end, many treasurers are now reflecting on their migration experience and looking ahead with the question 'what next'? The introduction of standardised payment and collection instruments, based on common formats, is a major step forward in pan-European payments harmonisation.

However, with considerable changes in technology and payments culture since the SEPA instruments were first concieved, the issue now is how to move forward quickly in optimising the new European payments and collections landscape.

Key Points

  • Facing the SEPA direct debit challenge
