Payment service providers having their registered office in another EEA country
A non-resident payment service provider must first complete the notification procedure of the supervisory authority in its Member State of origin before it can operate under its single European licence in the Netherlands. That supervisory authority will forward its notification to De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB).
Non-resident payment service providers must then comply with Dutch laws and regulations. EEA countries are those of the European Union, Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland.
If a payment service provider having its registered office in another EEA country wishes to provide its services from a branch office located in the Netherlands, through a Dutch-based payment services agent or directly from its foreign office, it requires authorisation from the supervisory authority in its own country.
