The format of import files for domestic currency payments will change in Client-Bank after January 1
Raiffeisen Bank would like to draw the attention of the Client-Bank system users to the change of import files format for domestic currency payments, as well as the printed form of a payment order.
As it is known, the implementation of the new payment standard ISO20022 by the National Bank of Ukraine is rescheduled for 01.04.2023. However, effective from 01.08.2022., a number of changes regarding cashless settlements in domestic currency were implemented by the NBU Resolution No. 163 of 29.07.2022. On that basis, Raiffeisen Bank introduces the necessary changes and will gradually implement them for step-by-step adaptation of customers.
Thus, in particular, effective from January, the “Payment order” will be replaced with the “Payment instruction”, in which the fields will be added for the filling of the address, if the legal entity recipient has no EDRPOU code or it consists of nine figures. If payments to such recipients are initiated, the “Address” field shall be mandatory for filling. A payment will not be sent without such information.
In this connection, if you work with counterparties (recipients) without the EDRPOU code or with a code that consists of nine figures, you must solve the issue of your internal systems’ configuration/update yourself by January 1, 2023. This will allow executing document import operations correctly after the change of the import files format. If the necessary development on the customer’s side is completed earlier than at the bank, the document import will be carried out correctly.
If the Client-Bank user does not cooperate with the counterparties (recipients) without a EDRPOU code or with a code consisting of nine figures, the import file format may be kept unchanged and the existing one may be used.
The guidelines with the description of the new import file structure in Ukrainian and in English
Please pay attention that the export files (statement) format will not be changed.
The changes of import file format will also be made in the new Raiffeisen Business Online, of which an additional notice will be provided.
The details on the changes during the implementation of ISO20022 are available at Raif’s website.
Raif is always close by!
