Getting ready for SEPA
Piraeus Bank is adapting to the changes resulting by the implementation of SEPA in the area of payments. Those changes affect the main electronic payment instruments, namely electronic credit transfers, direct debits, payroll transactions, etc.
For your convenience, the IBAN is displayed in all your transactions with Piraeus Bank. You can also use the IBAN calculator to convert your Piraeus Bank account number to IBAN format or to verify the format of IBAN number of any bank. For mass conversion services of your previous Piraeus Bank account numbers to IBAN format you can refer to your local Piraeus Bank branch.
Consequently, new versions of Piraeus Bank’s applications to create files for payroll and mass payments have been released. Τo download the updated applications, technical specification documents and user manuals for payroll through file refer here and for mass payments through file (transfers to third party accounts held with Piraeus Bank and credit transfers to third banks), refer here.
