This tele-web seminar will begin on Friday, November 16, 2012 at 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM Pacific Time.

Use of the FinCEN CTR, SAR, and DOEP is mandatory after March 31, 2013. This series reviews instructions for completion of the new reports, emphasizing the commonalities and the differences between them and the legacy form. Attendees will be able implement the necessary changes to their processes and internal training for identifying suspicious activity and forms completion. The presentation has been updated and reflects changes made in the report’s instructions in October, 2012.

The FinCEN-CTR Report (formerly BSA-CTR) reflects substantive changes to the responsibility to report large currency transactions. Its more sophisticated design breaks down aggregated transactions into individual components. It has many new data fields and a completion sensitivity that generates a need for over 130 different error codes.

We encourage you to prepare for this program in advance by viewing a brief webinar presented by FinCEN. Go to http://www.fincen.gov/ under”What’s New” to view the webinar.
