International Cash &Treasury Management

The 15th Annual EuroFinance Conference, International Cash and Treasury Management was held in Miami from May 23 to 25, 2011, at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa, Miami, USA.

Frank Lebled and Elodie Garamond attended the event to share the group’s experience of SEPA.

 

SEPA: Toil and too much trouble for your European operations?

SEPA is supposed to make cross-border payments as easy and inexpensive as domestic payments in Europe. It’s an opportunity to automate payments, consolidate accounts and increase efficiencies in the payment  process. But not a lot of companies are finding it all that promising, plagued by delays and lack of clarity around end dates. Well, now that the European Commission is getting serious about imposing deadlines for switching over to SEPA – it’s time to dust off the game plan and see what can be done with a bit of an overhaul. To date, companies have been put off the idea of launching the required reengineering process, but there is a business case for it; there are immediate benefits and soon you will have no choice.
