Regulation of E-Money & Payment Services - Key Requirements & Common Exclusions
Any business that receives cash from one set of customers and makes payments to others in or from the UK might be issuing electronic money and/or offering payment services.
Regulations in this area can also affect gift vouchers or other forms of value that can be exchanged for goods or services, as well as services that enable the transfer of data from payment accounts or the initiation of payments, even without handling funds.
Examples of firms affected range from e-commerce marketplaces, to retailers, to accounting software providers, to regulated payment service providers.
Services that do not fall outside the scope of regulation could require authorisation or registration; or qualify for specific exclusions, some of which are still subject to some regulatory thresholds and registration requirements.
