Prior to SEPA, all communities and member states of the European Union processed transactions in their own manner which resulted in numerous variations of payment systems all over Europe. To standardise transaction processing, the new SEPA rulebooks and formats have to be implemented. Only by realizing SEPA, credit transfers, direct debit and card transactions will be processed the same way in every member state of the European Union.
