Its goal is to improve the efficiency of cross-border Euro transfers within the Eurozone countries and create one unified standard. SEPA enables individuals and businesses, who have a bank account in the Eurozone, to make Euro payments to SEPA member state at fixed costs or no costs depends on the amount.
