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 message 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 (stocks and flows); for those countries which base their compilation of the BOP on surveys.


1.2. Field of Application

This message is to be applied in the framework of the data collection for the Balance of Payment compilation.


1.3. Principles

The message , which contains 3 parts, is sent by enterprises (non-banks) to the BOP compiler to supply information on amounts received from non-residents via resident banks. This is an alternative route to sending a BOPINF message. Or, as is the case in France, to report on all their transactions, payments and receipts.

This part deals with part 1 of the message.

This message could 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.

This part deals with part 2 of the message.

Further, this message could 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)

This part deals with part 3 of the message.

Each part is independent from each other. A message can contain one, two or all of them.
