Payment statistics cover information particularly about payment cards and accepting devices, number of payment accounts, payments per type of payment service and payments per type of terminal. The main objective of the statistics is to provide relevant data needed to macroeconomic forecasts, oversight and identification of trends in payments.
Payment statistics methodology is in accordance with the requirements of the Regulation (EU) No 1409/2013 of the European Central Bank (ECB/2013/43). Actual reporting population is made by, except monetary financial institutions, payment institutions, electronic money institutions. For other reporting agents required to submit these data, an exemption from reporting is applied in accordance with the Regulation (EU) No 1409/2013 of the European Central Bank (ECB/2013/43), and the data for these entities are calculated in the statistics.
