Overview of the Payment Services Act in Singapore

In 2019, Singapore passed the Payment Services Act (PSA) or ‘the Act’, which became effective January 28, 2020 and replaced and expanded upon the MCRBA and Payment Systems (Oversight) Act. The PSA is a risk-based regime that imposes actual and potential obligations on a wide variety of payment service providers (PSPs) based on the particular payment services activities they perform. The Act’s objectives are to foster the growth and increase the efficiency of payment service tools and to protect consumers and merchants utilising payment services from certain risks.
