Also, complying with the apex’s bank directive, Stanbic IBTC bank sent a notice to its customers on Wednesday. 

“We wish to bring to your notice that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has deployed the automated Forms A and NCX for invisible and non-commercial export transactions (in addition to commercial export already on the platform) on the Trade Monitoring System (TRMS) platform,” the statement reads.

“It has therefore become imperative for every individual (Current and potential customers for invisible transactions such as tuition fee, upkeep, medical fee, personal travel allowance (PTA) business travel allowance (BTA), subscription, professional exams, and certification fee and other related requests) to immediately sign up on the Trade Monitoring System (TRMS) platform preparatory to cut over to the new system by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN),” it added.
