Efile Migration

From E-fileWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


We are continuously enhancing our system and it is now time to migrate the last remaining graphical interfaces from the current e-file version 1 onto e-file Version 2. We are currently planning to proceed with the graphical migration following the planning indicated in the timeline section.

While the face changes, the service remains as expected.

While the interface will change the reporting itself will not be touched and thus if you use the sending service already to transmit your data, nothing actually changes for you. If you wish to use the sending service, we refer to the following installation document. [[1]]

Concerned Graphical Interfaces

The following modules are concerned:

  • Regulatory disclosure to investors (CSSF 08/371) (CSSF 09/423)
    • CSSF attestation, Visa stamped prospectus, Management Letter
  • SICAR reporting - can be transmitted by sending service already
  • TAF MIFID and its GUI - Transactions in Financial Instruments - will be decommissioned and replaced by MIFIR reporting

Date Event
05 February 2018 Migration of the remaining modules onto the new technical infrastructure. Historical transmissions for SPJ are migrating after that date and are continuously accessible via the previous interface. To ensure a smooth integration, we migrate the modules first and the link to the new interface will change on 12 February 2018 only. Nevertheless, if you wish to use the new interface already, use the link to the new interface on the previous interace.

Transmit your Prospectus and obtain the VISA stamped version

You actually submit your prospectus as outlined in the following chapter "Transmission of Document". It is only important to announce that you recuperate the visa stamped version in the future by selecting the initial transmission and clicking on the Plus.jpg button. On the transmission you did, you will see a second line with the CSSF visa stamped prospectus that you can download from the screen.

Request a CSSF attestation

Once you launched the transmission module as outlined on this page, you can select under sending type "Request CSSF attestation" to launch this process and will obtain the attestation once delivered by the CSSF in the future by selecting the initial transmission on the transmission follow up screen and clicking on the Plus.jpg button of the transmission. On the transmission you did, you will see a second line with the CSSF attestation that you can download from the screen.

Transmission of reports/documents to authorities

Independantly of your business need, we have harmonized the way of how reports/documents can be transmitted to Luxembourg authorities. Simply launch the Transmission Module by clicking on the below icon.

NE TransmissionModule.PNG

The system will launch the transmission module. If you enter the module for the first time, you may get Java or Firewall alerts. Please coordinate those alerts with your IT security team locally as each of our clients may have a different IT securiy company policy.

When entering the module for the first time, you have to configure where the keystore for the transmission can be found for the overall encryption of your transmission.

NE KeyStoreSetup.PNG

Once this has happened, the transmission module is good to be used.

NE TransmissionModuleDragAndDrop.PNG

Submitting a file to the authorities is very easy. You simply drag and drop the file with the correct naming convention into the drag and drop area and our system will based on the naming convention propose the applicable workflow to you. You complete the missing fields as you did previously, enter your Keystore Password and push transmit for the transmission.

Administrator screen

As outlined in the timeline, the screens for the administrator of the account will come later this year. We will provide you with the link to the admin screen at this place the day we launch the facelift for the other modules.

Transmission follow up

If you would like to follow up on your transmission - either via Sending Service or Transmission Module, you can enter into the transmission follow up screen by clicking on the below module.

NE TransmissionFollowup.PNG

The below screen will appear and you can now select based on the filters on the left hand side, which documents during which period you would like to see.

When you hit "search" all transmission of your organization, done based on the criteria you selected will be listed.

Retrieve old documents/reports

We have taken over your reportings and documents for the previous environment. You can either find them in your document library or transmission follow up screen should you need to enter previous reports. Due to the high number of documents, we have taken over in a first instance the reports and documents of the last 2 years onto the new platform.

Should you require older reports you have to choices

a) you use the access to the old environment to pull your old reports b) you ask Fundsquare to migrate your reports and documents for a larger period of time onto the new platform We would like to stress out the fact that your reports are kept in our infrastructure however the way you can retrieve them changes.
