Please note that over the forthcoming holiday period, all EPO sites will be closed from 24 December 2022 to 1 January 2023 inclusive. This will affect fee processing as follows:
Replenishments will continue to be automatically credited to your deposit account, provided that the deposit account number is correctly quoted in the reference field of the bank transfer (e.g. "replenishment 28XXXXXX", "repl28XXXXXX" or "deposit 28XXXXXX"). If this important information is missing, you may receive an automatic notification of insufficient funds. In this case a manual processing of the replenishment will be performed retroactively at the earliest on 2 January 2023.
Replenishments, booked transactions and pending orders will continue to be visible in Central Fee Payment and debit orders will be effectively booked during the EPO closure period, provided sufficient funds are available.
Pending refunds can continue to be claimed online. Refunds to EPO deposit accounts will be visible online the next day, whereas refunds to bank accounts will only be effectively executed with the next planned payment run after the closure period, i.e. as from 2 January 2023.
Year-end closing is expected to be completed by 9 January 2023. In accordance with point 6.2 of the Arrangements for deposit accounts, once the financial year is closed, a balance confirmation stating the year-end balance of the deposit account will be sent to all deposit account holders by post.
