Balance of payments - customer transaction reporting


As an authorised dealer in foreign exchange, we are required to report all cross-border customer transactions to the South African Reserve Bank (SARB). This is a regulatory requirement that underpins licences for all South African authorised foreign exchange dealers.

BOPCUS v3, the South African Reserve Bank’s updated framework for reporting of cross-border transactions in South Africa, was implemented on 19 August 2013.

Validation update to BOPCUS v3

Following the initial BOPCUS v3 implementation, SARB need further updates to be made to Schema Validations from 3 March 2014, to remain BOBCUS v3 compliant.
