Cross-border RMB Pooling in China

- In November 2014, the People's Bank of China (PBOC) issued the Notice Regarding Centralised Cross-border RMB Operation by MNCs (Circular Yinfa [2014] No. 324),which allowed RMB cross-border pooling to be implemented nationwide.
- In September 2015, PBOC issued the Notice on Further Facilitating Two-way Cross Border RMB Pooling Business for MNCs (Circular Yinfa [2015] No. 279), which eased the requirements for the use of RMB cross-border pooling as well as the capital inflow cap.
- Two-way RMB sweep is allowed for both domestic and overseas group companies up to the total amount of enterprise’s self capital except financing funds.
- RMB cross-border pooling scheme can be introduced to improve global fund efficiency of a group company.

However, a new management framework will be required for both banks and user companies.
Please contact your branch office for implementation, as some conditions will apply.
