A world of compliance challenges with payment services regulations

Multijurisdictional regulations are challenging for global companies. Let’s briefly discuss how companies should view and address payment services regulations. 

More than a legal requirement

Every country has different regulations that businesses need to follow to be compliant. These can be influenced by cultural components. The challenge comes in collecting information and verifying it for foreign companies. Governments and regulatory authorities have deferring views on ‘reasonable efforts’ to mitigate risks. In these cases, deep local knowledge becomes essential.

Understanding local differences

Foreign companies need to understand local dynamics within the regions they’re operating in. However, Jani insists that simple translation isn’t enough. 

Companies need to understand country-specific nuances to serve customers safely and in line with regulations. Businesses should work to gain a local perspective which can help them to identify and interpret global regulations. 

Regulating ecommerce: Balancing risk with bureaucracy

Ecommerce is a rapidly changing area of international trade. Ecommerce regulations must be followed for payout providers to be compliant. However, some loopholes can be legally utilized. 

Payout providers can avoid risking compliance by understanding presumable but influential technicalities. Business growth, for example, can change the regulations faced by your business.

New rules for new businesses

When new business models arise, companies must consider new areas of threat. Payout providers who deal with payment challenges early on can stay ahead of threats and challenges. 

Jani shares what technicalities should be considered first, including new fraud schemes and money laundering paths. She also explains how payout providers must develop innovative regulatory capabilities to fit into the changing digital world.
