To: Chief Executive Officers and Compliance Officers of All National Banks, Federal Branches and Agencies, Department and Division Heads, and All Examining Personnel
Description: Revised CTR Form
The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has modified the Currency Transaction Report (CTR), IRS Form 4789, to facilitate the recording of the movement and exchange of foreign currency in excess of $10,000. The revised form, FinCEN Form 104, became effective on December 1, 2003. The change was made in response to requests from law enforcement users of CTR information. The change has added two currency reporting entries to Part II, line item 26a to report foreign cash in, and line item 27a to report foreign cash out.
To facilitate the transition to the new form, the prior version of the CTR, Form 4789, will be accepted until August 31, 2004. FinCEN Form 104 is available on the FinCEN Web site at [http://www.fincen.gov].
Questions about the new CTR form may be directed to your OCC supervisory office or the Compliance Department at (202) 649-5740.
