Non-deposit Financial Institutions to be Taken Sown From Fund Transfer Channels – NIBSS



The Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System has asked banks to delist Payment Solution Service Providers, Switches and Super Agents from its outward payment or transfer list.


The NIBSS disclosed this in a recent circular dated December 5, 2023, with Ref: NIBSS/BD/NI/PO/005/051223 to banks.The country’s payment system explained that listing non-deposit-taking financial institutions as beneficiaries contravenes the Central Bank of Nigeria guideline on electronic payment.


It said, “This is to bring to your attention that listing non-deposit-taking financial institutions such as Switching Companies, Payment Solution Service Providers, and Super Agents as beneficiary institutions on your NIP funds transfer channels contravenes the CBN Guidelines on Electronic Payment of Salaries, Pensions, Suppliers, and Taxes in Nigeria dated February 2014.”
