The EU Payment Accounts Directive (PAD) was adopted in July 2014. Its main aim is to help the EU internal market for payment accounts work well. It seeks to improve:
The provisions of the Payment Services Directive, 2014/92/EU, related to comparability of fees are aimed at putting consumers into a position to more easily shop around and change providers, possibly even on a cross-border basis.
The directive requires EU payment service providers to provide customers with a statement of all fees incurred and information regarding interest rates for services linked to a payment account at least annually, free of charge. The communication sent to a customer needs to be sent out in the Statement of Fees (‘SoF’) template format defined by the EBA and follow the EBA’s regulatory technical standards (RTS) & Implementing technical standards (ITS) to meeting the SoF requirements and standardised presentation format.
The WILFr Statement of Fees component was developed to meet the needs of Banks to provide their customers with an annual statement detailing the fees that had been charged, as well as information regarding any interest rates linked to services on the customer’s account.
The WILFr Statement of Fees module provides the following:
By the end of 2020, every incoming single customer payment (MT 103 on FIN) will require a confirmation that the funds have been credited to the end beneficiary account. Confirmations are necessary to facilitate the smooth flow of money around the world. By providing these confirmations, Banks will be providing an improved customer service by offering transparency and certainty that the funds have reached their destination.
Confirmation is required within a maximum of two business days following the value date indicated on the MT 103. However, it is being encouraged that confirmation is provided as soon as possible. For those who have few payments per day, the Basic Tracker can be used which allows payments to be confirmed manually. Payments can be confirmed via the SWIFT interface using MT 199 messages, or via API calls for those who use the GPI connector.
If you would like to discuss the implications for your Bank, or how Fairmort could help to provide an automated solution, please contact Clive Bowles.
Over the past two months we have become aware of an increase in WILFr FSCS licensees being asked by the regulator to provide submissions. In light of this we suggest that this is a good time to test the FSCS file generation process and reconcile your returns to highlight any potential issues before a 24-hour notice is received. As always Fairmort will be available to assist with any support issue or to offer advice or consultancy services to ensure your Bank is in the best position to satisfy the regulator.
The current waiver by consent for the Continuity of Access (‘CoA’) rules expired on Sunday 1 December. Deposit-takers should consider whether they meet one of the three updated cases to be eligible for the new waiver and whether they wish to request the waiver by consent. This waiver by consent is available in relation to a firm if it meets criteria set out below. The waiver exempts a firm from the CoA rules (DPP 13.4-13.8 inclusive) and from the related CoA reporting requirements (DPP 15.2-15.4 inclusive and 15.7)
It is anticipated that the majority of WILFr Licensees will fall into Case 2. Should you require any advice or assistance please contact us.
To ensure our software is compliant with the latest regulations, Fairmort proactively checks the regulatory legislations for changes each month. These changes may have an impact on your business.
This edition provides further updates on the EBA’s v2.9 taxonomy changes that Fairmort reported in December 2018, and highlights proposed changes to Mortgage reporting requirements through the MLAR and PSD reports. Also see our regular PRA tracker.
The EBA’s major updates to taxonomy in v2.9 are now partway through the multiple-stage release plan, which continues through to June 2020. Note that some dates have moved since our last Newsletter. The latest delivery schedule diagram is shown below:
Note also that a subsequent minor update has been announced as v2.9.1. We have prepared and released taxonomy updates to those clients that are affected, and we will continue to do so over the coming months, in line with the rollout schedule.
You can find full details of the EBA’s planned changes at the following link:https://eba.europa.eu/risk-analysis-and-data/reporting-frameworks/reporting-framework-2.9
The PRA has announced updates to the MLAR, and PSD001 and PSD007 reporting which would apply to regulated mortgage lenders and home finance administrators, which are to be implemented in a rollout schedule from October 2020 through to April 2021.
Full details can be found in the policy statement at https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/prudential-regulation/publication/2018/fca-and-pra-changes-to-mortgage-reporting-requirements

It is highly recommended that the FSCS v1.1 patch is applied as it compiles feedback from FSCS for reported submission issues, clarification of questions we have raised directly with FSCS, general bug fixes and extra functionality for the FSCS module. One of the main functionality changes in the release is that the logic for calculating the customer account level compensation now fully complies with the FSCS ‘Pari Passu’ split apportioned balance per product hierarchy after feedback and discussions with the FSCS directly.
Additional updates include extra data validations compiled from licensee feedback (telephone numbers, email addresses, name and country additional checks), removal of the FSCS template header, a new popup checklist which appears before generating a submission, the ability to generate PGP encrypted files and other minor visual updates to the FSCS module.
After a successful May 2019 Submission for all our licensees, we have internally reviewed our AEOI module and added some additional features to help users manage their data more efficiently, added some additional data validation checks from HMRC feedback post submissions and fixed some minor display bugs. Some of the additional features include, the ability to change account holder types through the module, a new hyperlink feature to quickly jump between the account / party maintenance screens for customers, performance improvements when loading customers and accounts, the ability to copy reportable jurisdictions from the previous year, reducing manual effort, the ability to edit payments and jurisdictions instead of deleting and re-adding them. The release includes additional widgets to help review previously reported individuals, organisations & controlling persons to be confident that the right people are being submitted in comparison to the previous year’s submission.
