Filing FinCEN’s new Currency Transaction Report and Suspicious Activity Report


Today, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) began to accept the new Currency Transaction Report (CTR) and Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) into FinCEN’s BSA E-Filing System. Together, these two new reports will replace FinCEN Form 104 (CTR), FinCEN Form 103 (CTR by Casinos), and all of the industry-specific SARs (TD F 90-22.47, FinCEN Form 101, FinCEN Form 102, and FinCEN Form 109), hereinafter referred to as “legacy reports.”

While the new CTR and SAR forms do not create any new obligations or otherwise change existing statutory and regulatory expectations of financial institutions, this guidance is intended to assist institutions filing the new reports.

Timeline and Filing Method

FinCEN is now accepting the new CTR and SAR filings through the BSA E-Filing System. The BSA E-Filing System will continue to accept submissions of the legacy reports until March 31, 2013. Accordingly, until such time, financial institutions may choose to electronically file either the legacy or new reports, or any combination thereof.

In a separate action, FinCEN has mandated electronic filing of most reports through the BSA E-Filing System, beginning July 1, 2012.1 While FinCEN strongly recommends that financial institutions begin to file electronically before the mandate takes effect, financial institutions may continue to file, via paper, the most currently available versions of the legacy reports before July 1, 2012.2 The new CTR and SAR reports may only be submitted electronically.
