Uruguay: Removal of cash reserves requirements



1 May 2015

the Central Bank of Uruguay will remove the requirement for mandatory cash reserves for non-resident investors that were previously required for treasury bills denominated in Uruguayan Pesos (UYU) or Uruguayan Index Units.

Impact on customers

Clearstream Banking1 may accept new securities, provided they meet our eligibility criteria, or additional balances that are no longer subject to cash reserves.  

Further information

The Creation Link Guide (Uruguay) will be updated in due course.

For further information, customers may contact Clearstream Banking Tax Help Desk, Clearstream Banking Client Services or their Relationship Officer.
