1 EESTI PANK ANNUAL REPORT VI. PAYMENT AND SETTLEMENT SYSTEM The monetary stability as well as efficient and stable financial sector established as the objectives of Eesti Pank presume a payment and settlement system that functions on solid bases. In order to implement successful monetary policy, each central bank, including Eesti Pank, needs an efficient settlement system for settling payments in the base currency. In recent years Eesti Pank has therefore focused on developing the settlement system. A modern and efficient settlement system, being the infrastructure of the financial sector, is also a precondition for the efficient and secure functioning of the payment and settlement system as a whole, guaranteeing the stability and sustainable development of the financial sector as well as efficient circulation of money in the country. Trust in the monetary system is also enhanced by properly meeting the cash demand of the society. New Inter-bank Settlement System The new inter-bank settlement system was launched on January and the year can be considered the year of realising the ideas of previous years and completing the several years long major project. The work done in the years resulted in a settlement system that meets the international requirements and the needs of Estonian financial system as well as the entire society with minimum possible costs. Unlike the old inter-bank settlement system processing both large-value and retail payments, the new system consists of two sub-systems: Real Time Gross Settlement System (RTGS) and Designated Time Net Settlement System (DNS). The RTGS, where payments are processed in real time, is primarily meant for processing large-value (over million kroons) and urgent payments. In the DNS, which is meant for processing retail payments, net settlements are also made continuously, but received payment orders are transmitted to the receiving bank three times a day (at. am, 4. and.). Inter-bank balances arising from processing payments in the DNS are settled once daily, at., in the RTGS. In terms of its structure, the new inter-bank settlement system fully meets the international requirements and good practices. The new system does not involve any credit risk either. The latter risk is hedged in the RTGS by the principle that the receiving bank is notified about a payment only after its settlement at the accounts of the sending bank and the receiving bank with the central bank. The credit risk in the DNS is hedged by the principle that liabilities arising from payments initiated by a bank can never exceed the amount of security deposited by the bank in the DNS collateral account. The introduction of the new settlement system enables commercial banks to extend the range of services offered to customers and manage their liquidity more flexibly. For bank clients, the launching of the new system primarily means that payments initiated in another commercial bank are received more quickly on the account of the client. The development of the system continues also during the entire year of. Amendment of Legislation Concerning Payment and Settlement Systems In Eesti Pank updated the legislation concerning payment and settlement systems. The legislation was amended regarding the procedure of making non-cash settlements through credit institutions.
2 PAYMENT AND SETTLEMENT SYSTEM Non-cash settlements regulated by decrees and regulations of the Governor of Eesti Pank that entered into force in different years were reviewed and the necessary norms contained in these were gathered into a single up-to-date decree of the Governor of Eesti Pank. The updated legislation ensures that several new principles established in the European Union directives are now implemented also in Estonia. Concentration of non-cash settlement regulations into a single legislative act also makes it easier for the banks and their clients to get a comprehensive view about the current legislative norms. Payment Instruments Like in previous years, the number of cash payments decreased in comparison to other payment instruments also in. The share of cash payments accounted for only.4% of all the payments settled through credit institutions and.% of their turnover. The number of cash payments declined twice against. The most widely used non-cash payment instrument in was the credit order, comprising % of the total number of non-cash payments and % of their turnover (see Table.). More and more bank customers prefer more convenient and cheaper Internet banking to the conventional paperbased credit order. The turnover of Internet banking almost doubled against, reaching 4,4 million kroons. Among non-cash payment instruments, the share of Internet bank accounted for.% of the total number of payments in. Among other electronic payment instruments, the turnover of telebank and telephone bank was 4, million kroons and, million kroons, respectively, and their share in the total number of non-cash payments was and % respectively.

The most widespread type of debit instrument in was still payment with the bankcard that accounted for % of the total number of non-cash payments and totalled, million kroons of turnover. The number of bankcard payments increased by % and turnover about % compared to. A change in payment habits is characterised by another debit-type payment order, direct debit, that customers got used to very rapidly, using it to settle more than 4. million payments in. The number of direct debits increased by more than two thirds against and their share in the total number of payments increased from.% to.4% over the year.

4 PAYMENT AND SETTLEMENT SYSTEM Along with the economic upturn and more active use of various payment instruments, the number and turnover of payments settled through the settlement system of Eesti Pank increased by.% and 4.%, respectively in (see Table.4). Payments up to, kroons were responsible for.% of all the payments and.% of their turnover. Payments over a million kroons accounted for only.% of the total number of payments but for.% of the turnover. At the end of commercial banks introduced the Internet-based telebanking for business customers that enables companies to link their accounting system to the Internet bank. The advantage of the new instrument is that it functions without any special client-side software. Meeting the Cash Demand One of the main objectives of Eesti Pank is to meet the society s cash demand. To accomplish this, the central bank: issues cash to credit institutions as the demand grows; accepts cash from credit institutions as the demand falls; replaces worn-out bank and with new ones and destroys the old ones. Due to the currency board system applicable in Estonia, all the issued bank and must be covered with Eesti Pank s foreign reserve. To make cash operations more efficient and improve the management, the former Cash Department and Security Department of Eesti Pank were combined into a single department in. The reason for this was that the operations of the formerly separate departments had become largely intertwined. Issued Bank and Coins and Their Structure As of December there was a total of,. million kroons in circulation, of which,. million kroons, ie.% was in the vaults of Estonian credit institutions and,. million kroons, ie.% in circulation outside the credit institutions. The amount of cash in circulation increased by. million kroons, ie.% over the year. Bank and in circulation formed.% of broad money (M) at the end of, a year earlier the same indicator was.%. Apart from the stable continual growth in the amount of circulating cash in, seasonal changes were clearly observable in June and December like in earlier years. In these months the amount of cash in circulation increased by approximately %. Such an increase can be explained by payment of holiday pays and Christmas bonuses to employees in June and December, respectively. Earlier trends continued to prevail also in the structure of cash in circulation in (see Table.). The amount of kroon bank in circulation increased significantly, which practically covered all of the increase in the amount of cash in circulation. But also the number of kroon bank increased, replacing in part the kroon bank that are gradually removed from circulation. The amount of other bank in circulation remained quite stable. Despite the fact that the number of all issued by Eesti Pank went up (except kroon ), the accounted for less than % of total cash in circulation.

The smallest banknote issued by Eesti Pank is the kroon note (the face value of the smallest euro banknote, for instance, is euro, ie ca kroons). With the increase in the number of kroon bank, the average value of a banknote in circulation increased by.4 kroons in and amounted to.4 kroons on December. The average value of a coin in circulation was. sents. Considering the accession negotiations with the European Union, Eesti Pank is not planning to change the structure of bank and to be issued. Cash Movement In Eesti Pank issued 4,. million kroons of bank and to credit institutions and,. million kroons was returned to Eesti Pank (see Table.). In terms of quantity, Eesti Pank issued 4.4 million bank and. million, whereas. million bank and. million were returned to Eesti Pank.

A banknote or coin of maximum security could cost several times more than a similar and less secure note or coin. However, a banknote with few security features can be easily counterfeited. A new technical specification of the kroon note was prepared in and an international underbidding was carried out for their production. The new kroon note has a number of new security features that make the note more counterfeit-proof. The new banknote is also more easily recognisable for the visually impaired. In technical and security terms the new kroon banknote belongs to the same generation as the kroon banknote issued in and the kroon note issued in. The bank conducted examinations of, worn-out and damaged Estonian bank and counterfeited Estonian bank in. The partly preserved surfaces of bank were precisely measured according to a method developed in the year. The authenticity of allegedly counterfeit or forged Austrian, British, Canadian, Czech, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish and US bank submitted by commercial banks was examined and expert opinion expressed. Employees of credit institutions were trained on the security features and identification of counterfeit euro bank. Euro Mediation In the first quarter of Eesti Pank started to make preparations for providing technical and informative support in Estonia to the circulation of euro cash. Usually commercial banks get their foreign exchange, including the euro, directly without any mediation of the central bank. Considering the recommendations of the European Central Bank as well as the See also Participation in Presenting Euro Bank and Coins, p.
7 EESTI PANK ANNUAL REPORT speed and delivery terms of various methods for obtaining euro cash, Eesti Pank concluded an agreement in for the procurement of euro cash from the European System of Central Banks. This was an irregular single procurement to ensure sufficient reserves to meet the demand for the single currency cash in the first days of and possible irregular demand during the period of parallel circulation. The central bank made an analysis about the necessary amount of euro cash needed to replace the national currencies of countries shifting to the euro that were in circulation in Estonia; the results were also discussed with the Estonian Banking Association. The amount of euro cash procured to Estonia for the beginning of was determined on the basis of this analysis and considering individual orders placed by the commercial banks. The supplying of the banks with euro went smoothly and euro were available on the first business day of in all the commercial banks in Estonia. A comprehensive training for the Estonian commercial banks cash specialists about the security features of euro bank and methods for the detection of counterfeit euro was organised largely on the account of Eesti Pank funds, using the specialists of the central bank.
