Banks feel the restrictions imposed by the EU Commission as a transition period is too short. High activity on the sourcing market for payment services is expected.

European banks are still not sufficiently prepared to fully migrate to the SEPA credit transfers and direct debits. This emerges from a study by management consultancy Capco, a leading global provider of consulting and transformation services to the financial services industry. In relation to the expected establishment of a binding conversion date by the EU Commission is threatening many banks the time to run away.
