Cash treasury & commercial payments clearing 

Societe Generale is a direct participant in pan-European and domestic clearing systems in several countries.

We act as intermediary for banks  which are not members of a clearing system, to avoid them investing in a direct connection. Thanks to a solid and long-standing footprint in Eastern Europe and Western Africa, we are able to provide clearing in EUR, CZK, MAD, PLN, RON and RUB, with strong capacities in other currencies.

A world-class service provider offering cutting-edge technologies

Payments are routed regardless of their characteristics or final destination, using a network of preferred correspondents to enhance the Societe Generale retail network.

To monitor your payments, Societe Generale, via a unified portal, provides you with its web-based reporting tool, WebClear. This tool displays details, status and associated balances of each payment including the brand-new SWIFT gpi tracker. You have access to your invoices and other services to facilitate your day-to-day operations.

Our cheques offer provides you with all the relevant data concerning the collection of your cheques in France and abroad via the web tools WebCheques/SogeCheque.
