BSA Exemptions

Q: Would a transaction, which would be exempt from CTR (Cash Transaction Report) reporting under 31 CFR 103.22 (d) (2) be exempt if the transaction were between a U.S. corporation and its branch located in another country?

A: No. The exemptions apply only to "domestic operations" gas stated in 31 CFR 103.22 (d) (2) (i), (iv), (v) and (vi). Section 103.11 (k) defines domestic as: " When used herein, refers to the doing of business within the United States, and Limits the applicability of the provision where it appears to the performance by such institutions or agencies of functions within the United States." According to the definition, any transaction crossing the U.S. border (except the states of Hawaii and Alaska) would be covered and subject to CTR reporting. The exception would not include "territories and insular possessions as defined in Section 103.11 (tt)."

BSA and Credit Transaction Retention

However, maintaining a log of these transactions could be helpful in retrieving any required information in the future.

In the case of financial institutions other than casinos, for purposes of this section, multiple currency transactions shall be treated as a single transaction if the financial institution has knowledge that they are by or on behalf of any person and result in either cash in or cash out totaling more than $10,000 during any one business day (or in the case of the Postal Service, any one day). Deposits made at night or over a weekend or holiday shall be treated as if received on the next business day following the deposit." Merchant Verification of Account Balance
