Importing and exporting files


Starting from 1 January 2016, the companies sending payment orders via the Internet Bank, are required to use the ISO 20022 XML format messages and will be able to download  the statements of account in the above format from the Internet Bank to the accounting software.

Users of the ISO 20022 XML format messages will have an opportunity to:

  • automate the payment  order transfer to the bank
  • receive the statements of account from the bank for the specified period
  • receive the statements of account and sent the payment orders in the identical ISO 20022 XML format

Aiming to efficiently use the advantages of the ISO 20022 XML format, from 1 January 2016  it is applied by AB SEB bankas for the transfers in the euro and also in other foreign currencies.
