How does the virtual IBAN work?

Virtual IBANs are an alternative to traditional IBANs. They route incoming (or outgoing) payments from a company to the main IBAN. These funds are then consolidated into a single account, making it easier to track transactions. 

Create as many virtual IBANs as you need, associating them with the main account to centralize cash receipts in a single account.

Once generated and communicated to the recipient, the latter can make transfers using the payment details. Funds are automatically credited to the associated master account.

The virtual IBAN can be used to segment incoming transactions according to product or service, geographical area, expenditure category, etc.

Features of Treezor’s virtual IBANs


Predefined number of transactions

Treezor’s virtual IBANs can be configured to accept up to a predefined number of transactions. This feature is particularly useful to help you manage your budgets and prevent misuse, as you can impose a ceiling on the number of transactions linked to a given virtual IBAN.


Control over cumulative transaction amounts

Treezor gives you the option of restricting the total value of transactions that a virtual IBAN can process. This limit on the cumulative transaction amount provides an additional layer of financial security, preventing the excessive transfer of funds via a single virtual IBAN, ensuring that cumulative spending remains within the same allocated budget.


Configuration limited to a single direction

Treezor’s virtual IBANs can be configured to handle a single transaction direction: either outgoing funds via SEPA Direct Debit (SDD) or incoming funds via SEPA Credit Transfer (SCT). This limitation helps you to considerably reduce the risk of unauthorized funds movements.


Time restrictions

To further enhance the security of your transactions, Treezor’s virtual IBANs can be customized to operate within a specific time period. This time limitation ensures that the virtual IBAN in question is active only during specified periods, and deactivated once the period is over.
