Compliance with legal conditions plays an increasingly important role in payments business. Corporates have to match outgoing transactions against sanction lists as a counter-terrorism measure. Parties which fail to comply face both legal consequences and a significant reputational damage if the case becomes public knowledge. In order to prevent breaches of sanctions lists, you as a corporate should therefore anchor appropriate "sanctions screening" checks in your banking processes.
With the "Denied Party Check" add-on for the MultiCash® payment factory, you fulfil the legal requirements and incorporate the checks within a centralized and integrated electronic banking system, where all transactions can be monitored. All transactions delivered by your back office system are taken into account, alongside any payments entered manually. The data matching is designed to minimize the manual effort. The Denied Party Check, for instance, does not only allow an automated sanctions screening against sanction lists but also matches non-suspicious transactions against "Whitelists" of known and trustworthy partners.
In the case of a suspicious transaction, the whole payment file is not rejected, but the file is split, so that any compliant transactions can be submitted to the banks. At all stages in the payments process, a full logging is made in line with audit requirements. In addition, a range of reporting functions are available.
The Denied Party Check add-on is a plug & play solution, which can be integrated into your existing MultiCash Payment Factory without significant effort.
