What's new?

On March 28th, 2019, an update to version 5.22 of the Sofie client has been released.

The naming convention for the reports sent by the financial institutions to the BCL, and to the CSSF in copy, has been updated.

These are the "S0103", "S0106", "S0213" and "TPTOBS" files of the OPCT package.

The "reporter type" field now accepts values 1, 5, 6, A, B, I, K, O, P and S.

The "declarant type" field now accepts values 1, 5, 6, A, B, I, K, O, P and S as well as NAF.


The naming convention for these files is described in this document, published in October 2018:

Please note that SOFiE does not currently support the value “NAF”  as a "type reporter" yet.


Gentle reminder: It is mandatory to update any existing client installation before December 1st, 2018 as this protocol will be the only one accepted for https connexions from this point on. A document explaining what to check is available here.
