BS, meanwhile, has developed a standard interface and messaging service for institutions to connect with.
"With the signing of this agreement, SaarLB will be able to implement the reporting requirements in a timely manner. The bank will also perform automated reporting of financial statements for its clients. Thus, SaarLB can assist small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in implementing the statutory requirements as well,” says Werner Severin, vice chairman of SaarLB.
