Scope
- To promote electronic payments and to reduce dependence on cash, the government introduced a new regulation in December 2016, according to which monthly cash transactions are capped at $16,650.90 (AZN30,000) for VAT-registered businesses with monthly transactions over $111,006.30 (AZN200,000). Similarly, monthly cash payments for other tax payers have been limited to $8,325.50 (AZN15,000). All transactions over the relevant value must be paid electronically. The regulation was made effective from January 1, 2017 for other tax payers, and from 1 April, 2017 for VAT-registered tax payers. These measures are aimed at encouraging cashless payments.
- Banks are now also offering dual cards with the functionality of both debit and credit cards. Kapital Bank introduced the Visa Dual Card in Azerbaijan in May 2016, the first debit and credit card utilizing only one chip. The chip of the new card contains the numbers of both cards, which enables the card holder to use it as a debit and a credit card. The card can be linked to more than one account, in currencies including Azerbaijani manats, US dollars, and euros.
- Growth in the payment cards market has encouraged several international payment processors to establish their operations in the country. For instance, JCB International, the international operations unit of Japanese credit card issuer and acquirer JCB, launched JCB merchant acquiring operations in Azerbaijan with the International Bank of Azerbaijan (IBA) in February 2016. The move enables JCB cards to be accepted at all the bank’s acceptance locations across Azerbaijan.
