Payment Systems:

There is no specific order to process cash payments in the Indonesian market except that high value payments of IDR 100 million and above are processed through RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement). Smaller values are normally processed through Inter Bank Giro (IBG). The RTGS system is an electronic real time payment system introduced in November, 2000. RTGS is available from 08:00 to 16:30.

Under BI Regulation No.3/3/PBI/2001, IDR transfer to non-resident accounts with local banks are only allowed against certain approved economic activities and supported by the appropriate documentation.

Scripless settlement payments - scripless settlement involves the movement of funds between the cash accounts of custodians/brokers held at the applicable payment banks. KSEI will credit/debit the appropriate participant’s cash account held at KSEI to facilitate trade settlement. The funds from scripless delivery transactions will be remitted back to clients cash account on SD.

Settlement under the net settlement system - a net settlement system exists for scripless transactions, particularly between clearing participants (i.e. brokers v.s. KPEI/Indonesian Clearing and Guarantee Corporation). Custodians are not directly involved in these systems, so transactions between custodians and brokers are settled on a trade-for-trade basis
