Data Cruncher 24c

Efficient implementation of the requirements according to § 24c KWG

Your challenge

According to the German Banking Act (Kreditwesengesetz, KWG), credit institutions are obliged to provide complete, accurate and up-to-date information on the accounts, deposits and safe custody accounts for automated access to § 24c-relevant account details of public authorities. This customer master data is collected by credit institutions as part of their customer acceptance process and subsequently stored in a separate database. This ensures that the data can be retrieved without the knowledge of the credit institutions.

Furthermore, credit institutions shall update data changes on the same day in order to keep the database up-to-date. Furthermore, the data shall be deleted after a period of 10 years after the closure of the account, deposit and safe custody account.

Additional effort for operational units, Compliance and Internal Audit

5th EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive

In the course of the implementation of the 5th EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive, the automated access of account and client data was introduced throughout Europe. This entails higher pressure on §24c-reports.

Reporting of further information necessary

Due to extended requirements, institutions must transmit further details of the account holder, the person authorised to dispose of the account and the beneficial owner.

Europe-wide connection of automated-access systems

Through the planned Europe-wide connection of the automated-access-systems there will be a focus on the correctness of the 24c-reports and the data quality.

Our solution - report analysis made easy

Our PwC Data Cruncher 24c enables you to take a cost-effective, efficient and standardized approach to meet legal requirements. We collect your reporting-data and evaluate any amount of data for you.

The evaluation takes place in different dimensions. For example, the reports are checked based on multi-layered KPIs and plausibility checks are carried out. The results of the evaluation are graphically visualized and can afterwards be exported in detail via an export function for further validation.

In addition, the Data Cruncher 24c can be used to check and correct compliance with the new, more stringent legal requirements for 24c-relevant-data.
