0. INTRODUCTION

This specification provides the definition of the Direct balance of payment declaration message (BOPDIR) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.


1. SCOPE


1.1. Functional definition

The Direct balance of payments declaration message (BOPDIR) can be sent by non-bank residents to report directly to the Balance of Payments (BOP) compiler on:

  • transactions via bank accounts held at a resident bank
  • transactions via bank accounts held at a non-resident bank
  • transactions and clearing via accounts with non-bank non- residents
  • foreign assets and liabilities
  • information in the context of a BOP-related survey (stock and flows); for those countries which base their compilation of the Balance of Payments on surveys.

1.2. Field of application

The Direct balance of payment declaration message may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.


1.3. Principles

The message contains 2 parts:

In the first part of the message, it is used to supply information on amounts received from non-residents via resident banks. This is an alternative route to sending a BOPINF message to the bank.

In the second part, this message can also be used for reporting on settlements via external bank accounts, current accounts held abroad with non-banks or participation in an international clearing system.

Further, this message part can also be used for reporting results for all types of BOP-related surveys: either for reporting results of general questionnaires or for specific questionnaires such as the reports on positions (foreign assets and liabilities).

Each part is independent from each other. A message can contain either or both of them.
