Simplify CESOP Reporting with the ARKK Automation Platform


Simplify CESOP Reporting with the ARKK Automation Platform

From the 1st of January 2024, Payment Service Providers (PSPs) in the European Union (EU) encountered new regulatory demands, as the quarterly disclosure of cross-border payment information is now required in every member state. The Central Electronic System of Payment information (CESOP) is designed to boost transparency and combat VAT fraud. With the first filing deadline set for the 30th of April, the time to act is now. 


Who is required to comply? 

The CESOP regulatory framework is extensive, covering a wide range of financial institutions across the EU. This mandate extends to: 

  • Banks and Credit Institutions 
  • Electronic Money Institutions 
  • Payment Institutions 
  • Post-Office Giro Institutions 


As with any new regulatory requirement, the scope can be somewhat hard to understand. So if you think you may fall into scope, ARKK can help you determine either way. 


Eligible transactions and reporting essentials 

CESOP mandates the reporting of a vast range of payment transactions, from card payments to bank transfers and e-money movements. Reporting is necessary when transactions are cross-border, involve an EU-based payer, and exceed 25 transactions to the same payee within a quarter. Compliance requires detailed submission of payee identifiers, payment specifics, and transaction details.
