Minimum and essential data | Debt and mandates

The generation of debt and mandates through a tool such as Besepa requires some necessary data for proper processing.

But, first of all, what exactly do those terms mean?

  • SEPA Mandate: A mandate is an authorization, signed by the debtor that allows the creditor to charge his account. Mandate signing is mandatory in order to be able to charge the client’s account, but this process must be done only once, and can also be digitally signed.
