sys de paiement


The Banque centrale du Luxembourg became a participant of TARGET2 on 19 November 2007, the date of the migration of TARGET to the Single Shared Platform. It operates TARGET2-LU, the Luxembourgish component of TARGET2, which replaced LIPS-Gross1 .

 In TARGET2 only payment orders in euro are accepted. They are either national or cross-border, customer or interbank payments. Their settlement is executed:

  • one by one (for the gross amount, i.e. the amount mentioned in the payment order);
  • in real time and continuously;
  • in central bank money (that is to say recorded on the books of the central bank).

TARGET2 will also be used for settling net payments from ancillary systems’ clearings.
