Balances - v3.1.2

# Overview

The balances resource is used by an AISP to retrieve in bulk or single account balance information for a specific AccountId for that the PSU has authorised to access.

This resource description should be read in conjunction with a compatible Account Information Services API Profile.

# Endpoints

Resource HTTP Operation Endpoint Mandatory? Scope Grant Type Idempotency Key Parameters Request Object Response Object
1 balances GET GET /accounts/{AccountId}/balances Mandatory accounts Authorization Code No OBReadBalance1
2 balances GET GET /balances Optional accounts Authorization Code No Pagination OBReadBalance1

# GET /accounts/{AccountId}/balances

An AISP may retrieve the account balance information resource for a specific AccountId (which is retrieved in the call to GET /accounts).

# GET /balances

If an ASPSP has implemented the bulk retrieval endpoints, an AISP may optionally retrieve the account information resources in bulk. This will retrieve the resources for all authorised accounts linked to the account-request.

# Data Model

The OBReadBalance1 object will be used for the call to:

  • GET /accounts/{AccountId}/balances
  • GET /balances

# Resource Definition

This resource represents the net increases and decreases in an account (AccountId) at a specific point in time.

An account (AccountId) may have multiple balance types (these follow the standard ISO 20022 balance type enumerations). If an ASPSP includes a credit line in an available balance, then the balance representation will have a section for the credit line amount and type.

# Notes

  • Multiple balances may be returned (each with a different value for Type) for an account. This is for ASPSPs that show multiple balances in their online channels.
  • The CreditLine section may be repeated as multiple credit lines may be included in an available balance.
  • A DateTime element has been used instead of a complex choice element of Date and DateTime. Where time elements do not exist in ASPSP systems, the time portion of the DateTime element will be defaulted to 00:00:00+00:00.

# Permission Codes

The resource requires the ReadBalances permission. The resource response payload does not differ depending on the permissions granted.
