State Treasury service
The Bank of Italy acts as Treasurer to the Italian State. It makes payments on account of general government bodies and collects amounts due to them. Citizens can receive wages and salaries and other payments from governmental bodies, pay what they owe to those bodies on own or third-party account, and obtain reports on the transactions effected.
Issue and payment of BI cashier's cheques
This is the service that enables you to have Bank of Italy cashier's cheques issued or cashed. The cashier's cheque is an instrument issued by the Bank of Italy at the customer's request. It has the same status as a banker's draft or postal money order. Many of the Bank's cashier's cheques are issued at the request of the State Revenue Agency to refund income or other tax credits.
Exchange of banknotes and coins
The service will replace damaged euro notes and coins and change euro notes and coins for others of different denominations.
Checking suspected counterfeit notes
The service makes it possible to have suspected counterfeit notes examined; if they are found to be genuine, at the end of the examination reimbursement is given.
Access to the data of the Interbank Register of Bad Cheques and Payment Cards (CAI)
The Register enables you to check the data on you in its database, makes possible the monitoring of the regular circulation of bank and post office cheques and payment cards, and provides clarifications regarding the operation of the Register. The service is free of charge.
Access to Central Credit Register data
The Central Credit Register is an information system operated by the Bank of Italy that collects the data supplied by banks and financial companies on the credit they grant to their customers.
By submitting a complaint to the Bank of Italy, the customer can report behaviours on the part of banks and financial intermediaries that they deem to be irregular or wrong or irregularities in the information held in the Central Credit Register (CR) or in the Interbank Register of Bad Cheques and Payment Cards (CAI).
