return loop. CAMT messages are the perfect choice to achieve this goal.

corporate communication; this contains more details and provides more structured information

payment information throughout the entire financial value chain. The additional information
contained in CAMT messages has the potential to make automated accounting processes
significantly easier and particularly accurate in areas like bank reconciliation.

of bank-to-customer information: camt.052 for account reports, camt.053 for statements, and
camt.054 for debit/credit notifications.
