There are two ways to do this:

2. pain.001.001.02/PmtInf/CdtTrfTxInf/PmtTpInf/CtgyPurp = "SALA
In the ISO 20022 standard the payment type can be given both on debit level and on credit level. Nordea
recommends that the payment type is given on the debit level. In salary and pension payments the
Category Purpose “SALA” must be given on the debit level. In foreign currency payments the payment
type can also be on the credit level, if it has not been given on the debit level.
