“CESOP” – this buzzword stands for a new central database (Central Electronic System of Payment Information), which is to counter VAT fraud in e-commerce by collecting payment information. The directive on fighting VAT fraud will come into force on 1 January 2024 (Regulation [EU] 2020/283 and EU Directive 2020/284). Detailed information on cross-border payment transactions must then be reported to the tax authorities.
For various European payment service providers, the following elements of the regulation are of central importance:
- Reporting of all individual transactions for more than 25 cross-border payments per beneficiary per quarter
- Quarterly reporting at individual transaction level in XML format, with the threat of fines in the event of incorrect, late or incomplete reporting
- Different criteria per payment type to identify the recipient country
- Requirement of payment aggregation by the beneficiary bank
- Preservation of data for three years
- Use of predefined XML workflows for enquiries by the tax authority and their response
The CESOP directive has an impact on various processes of a bank and its technical infrastructure.
