Payment service providers
A payment institution provides payment services, such as cash deposits and withdrawals. And direct debits and wire transfers.
Most services require a licence from DNB. Read more about the different services requiring a licence . Some payment institutions do not need a licence. There are also institutions offering their payment services on the basis of a European passport. They are licensed in another country of the European Economic Area (EEA). You can also find this information in the register.

Then enter a name or part thereof in the “Statutory name / trade name” search field and click on Search. If you are unsure about the correct spelling of a firm’s name, use an asterisk (*) for part of the name. If you leave the search field empty, your search will produce the full list.

As a result of the expiry of the transitional period after Brexit, the public DNB Financial Supervision Act (Wft) register for incoming and outgoing notifications from/to the UK has been updated as of 1 January 2021. This means, for instance, that notifications entered in the Wft register for cross-border services to or from the UK, including Gibraltar, via passporting rights or the establishment of a branch, have been removed from the Wft Register. You can find an overview of the notifications that have been deleted here.
We update the register every business day at 06:00.
