SEPA Credit Transfer (SCT) Scheme

  • What is the SEPA Credit Transfer (SCT) Scheme?

    The SEPA Credit Transfer (SCT) scheme makes it possible to make cross-border electronic payments in euro throughout the current 33 SEPA countries as securely and efficiently as making the equivalent domestic payments. Ultimately, it will be as simple and straight forward to make a payment transfer from Dublin to Paris as from Dublin to Cork.
