ASL’s Advanced RTGS Solutions give businesses the ability to transfer money from one bank to another bank accurately and at high speed using ASL’s (or the paying bank’s) Exchange Settlement Account with the RBA.


Using ASL’s Advanced RTGS Solutions our customers benefit from:

Our RTGS offering allows your organisation to create and receive payments within our exclusive ASL Direct system, with the option of payment initiation and receipt within ASL Direct, or by provision of Straight Through Processing (STP).

The latter allows you to manage and process payments within your own systems.

The ASL Direct self-service portal is a web-based application which executes events based on the status of each transaction.

RTGS allows the settlement of transactions to takes place in real-time, out of credit funds held in ESAs. It is also the system used in Australia by banks for the domestic settlement of inward international funds transfers.

By having access to the ASL’s Advanced RTGS solutions, this allows you to receive all high value and domestic legs of international payments.

Using an ASL Exchange settlement account allows our customers to participate in RTGS.
