Internal Payment Accounts
Internal Payment Accounts (IPA)
Your Internal Payment Account (IPA) is an effective tool for making outgoing and incoming international payments and currency conversions. It is particularly suitable for clients who receive payments in foreign currency from their business partners and also use those currencies to pay their liabilities.
Your IPA can be used for the following:
- sending international payments
- receiving international payments
- making currency conversions
Primary benefits of using the IPA:
- you can open up to 18 IPAs for the most widely used currencies
- we manage and administer the account for you entirely free of charge
- simplicity and reliability – you carry out payments in compliance with all payment systems regulations, just as you would do with a bank account. Significant savings for bilateral international payments – low or no fees for incoming and outgoing payments
- speed – payments can be carried out in minutes
- your IPA can be managed using the On-line Broker (OLB) application. You can easily enter payments via the Internet from anywhere and at the same time you have a view of the transactions and balances on your IPA
