Settlement of fees in December 2020


Clearstream Banking AG, Frankfurt1 reminds customers that from now on settlement of fees will be collected via the TARGET2-Securities (T2S) settlement platform using PFoD instructions (Payment Free of Delivery). This procedure has been introduced with CBF November Release 2020.

As a result, PFoD instructions will be transmitted by CBF to T2S requiring the cash settlement on T2S Dedicated Cash Accounts (DCAs) for the following services for the first time:

  • On Tuesday, 1 December 2020: Broker commissions from securities settlement from BrainTrade
  • On Tuesday, 15 December 2020: CBF fees

The settlement results will be available via the standard T2S and CBF reporting.

CBF recommends checking the liquidity transfers / standing orders with the central bank so that sufficient liquidity is available for settlement in Euro on the respective settlement days during the night-time processing (NTS).
