Services

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.
