What is SEPA?
The Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) is an initiative of the EU governments, the European Commission and the European Central Bank (ECB), to create an integrated payments market across Europe for any organisation or individual making or receiving payments in Euro’s.
The European Parliament and European Commission have agreed on a deadline of 01st February 2014 for the phasing out of domestic credit transfers and direct debits, and moving to SEPA Credit Transfer and SEPA Direct Debit and other SEPA requirements. This deadline applies to EU member states in the Eurozone.
It is vital that businesses begin migrating as soon as possible, to ensure they are well placed to benefit from the new payment landscape.
