Kochański & Partners Advise Global Primex on the Introduction of eVouchers in the EU

Kochański & Partners Law Firm (K&P) have advised Global Primex sp. z o.o. on the process of marketing the Vload eVoucher within the European Union.

The Vload eVoucher is an independent payment instrument issued by an entity from outside the EU, and distributed in the EU by Global Primex.

K&P’s key responsibility was to advise on whether it was necessary for Global Primex to obtain authorisation from the Polish Financial Supervision Authority to distribute the eVoucher.  Accordingly, the regulatory support consisted in an analysis of legal requirements and restrictions in EU law that would be reflected in Polish law in relation to the proposed distribution of eVouchers.

K&P’s advice comprised of determining whether the Vload eVoucher could be considered as electronic money or as a payment instrument within the meaning of EMD1, EMD2 and the Payment Services Act, and whether the distribution of the eVoucher could be qualified as a payment service within the meaning of PSD2 and the Payment Services Act.

The K&P team was led by Agnieszka Serzysko, Ph.D. (Attorney at Law, Partner, Head of Financial Services), supported by Daniel Kozłowski (Advocate, Senior Lawyer).
