The Gist: Financial Institutions that engage in transactions involving money generated by marijuana-related activity are subject to criminal liability for failure to identify or report financial transactions which implicate violations of the U.S. Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”).
However, there is real potential for community banks and credit unions to offer their services to marijuana businesses. This is because bigger national banks continue to close out the last of their existing cannabis-related accounts. Although your Institution would still take on risk by providing services - which, technically, would violate federal law - if you comply with the Cole Memo and FinCEN Guidance, then this could be a lucrative opportunity.
This session will address the following questions about procedures and your bank: What does the law say about identifying nonresident aliens? What type of identification is being used around the country to open accounts? What are the proper procedures for W-8 reporting? What role does Office of Foreign Assets and Control (OFAC) play in your new accounts procedures? If these questions have not been answered to your satisfaction in your bank this session is a must.
This 90-minute webinar will help you develop a 2017 game plan to ensure your institution effectively and efficiently handles these changes.
This session will help you determine where to focus your attention in 2017. We will discuss what should be on your priority list to keep you out of the hot seat with your regulators.
In this session, we will discuss appropriate training, policies, and procedures to ensure that your frontline personnel is prepared to identify and refer potentially suspicious activity.
This program will answer commonly asked frontline questions and will review the red flags of terrorist financing, money laundering, and other financial crimes.
You don't want to miss this fun and engaging frontline training session, which will help improve the quality of your anti-money laundering program!

FinCEN developed a new electronic BSA Currency Transaction Report (CTR) that replaced FinCEN CTR Form 104. The new FinCEN CTR is mandatory and must be filed through FinCEN's BSA E-Filing System. The new CTR includes numerous additional data elements—it is quite different in style and approach than its predecessor.
