Dutch Payments Association

The Dutch Payments Association presents its annual report for 2023. A major theme running through our annual report are the developments and legislation in the EU for which the Dutch payment system proves to be an inspiration. In the Netherlands, for example, Instant Payments were already widely introduced in 2019 under our direction. Last year, the EU agreed on legislation that will make Instant Payments mandatory throughout the EU from 2025. Another example is the availability and accessibility of cash. To this end we concluded the Cash Covenant in 2022, under the direction of DNB and toget ..read more

It is almost time for our annual conference; less than a month to go! It should not be a surprise that this year’s conference is all about accessible and inclusive payments.

The European Central Bank’s board decided last week to move to the next stage of preparations.

Back to school! I hope everyone had a nice summer vacation and could return to work with new inspiration and energy. Thanks in part to the far-reaching harmonization of European payments in recent decades, our trips and vacations across borders have become notably easier.

In this newsletter you can read about the EU plans for the follow-up to PSD2, with a new PSR regulation and a PSD3 directive. And with a legislation package for a digital euro ..read more

The Minister of Finance has stated that accessible banking also includes cash, to manage spendings for people without digital skills, amongst others. Together with our members and the Dutch Banking Association, we will confer with the Dutch national bank and the Ministry of Finance on proposed ..read more

In October 2022, the Dutch Payments Association presented the “Study into the costs and revenues of payment services for financial institutions 2021” to its members and stakeholders. This report provides a fair picture of the banking costs and revenues associated with payment services in the Netherlands, for the first time since 2006.
