Hello and welcome to Currency Transaction Reports Simplified, presented by Compliance Simplified and BankinCuCompliance.com. We are going to review when to file a CTR and how to complete the forms accurately and completely. Now let's jump right in. When do we file a CTR? Well, a Currency Transaction Report must be completed for any transaction exceeding $10,000 in cash and must be filed within 15 days of the transaction. That's $10,000 and a penny or more. A reportable transaction can be the combination of several transactions throughout the day or one specific transaction if they aggregate more than $10,000 in currency and benefit one customer. Some examples include the cashing of a check or a group of checks, deposits, withdrawals, and exchanging of currency (for example, the exchanging of smaller bills for larger ones), a loan payment, or the cashing of savings bonds. For CTR purposes, you must treat multiple transactions occurring on the same business day and for the benefit of a single customer as a single transaction. Remember, a deposit made to a joint account benefits all account holders, not just the person initiating the transaction. For example, if a husband and wife have a joint account, and he comes in and deposits $7,000 in cash to their joint account on that same business day, and she comes in and makes a $5,000 cash deposit to her individual account, you are required to file a CTR reporting the $12,000 in cash that the wife received benefit of that day. Most modern computer systems create reports that help you identify these tricky situations, but regardless, this is an example of a reportable transaction. Now let's work on filling out the form. FinCEN requires financial institutions to electronically file CTR reports through the BSA e-filing system. They no longer permit paper filings...
