Old paper forms for Currency Transaction Reports (CTRs) and Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) have gone away, and they will soon be replaced by the new format which is only available online. After March 31, 2013, the new format will be required and the old (legacy) forms will be retired. But the new formats are already available on FinCEN’s e-filing system, so credit unions should be preparing to use them long before the mandatory deadline. If you batch file or rely on your data processing system to help populate the forms for filing electronically, there are significant changes your processor must be working on right now in order to meet the March 2013 deadline. Learn what you need to know to be prepared down the line.

Mary-Lou Heighes, CCUE is President and Founder of Compliance Plus, Inc. Mary-Lou has been involved in the credit union movement since 1989 and spent five years working in credit unions in almost every position (except teller and CEO). Like many credit union veterans, she has worn many hats, including the all-encompassing OTHER DUTIES AS ASSIGNED. That background made an easy transition to the Research and Information Department at the California Credit Union League where she spent seven years providing compliance assistance through the Information Hotline and writing and editing TIPs bulletins advising credit unions about changes to regulations affecting them. During her tenure at the league and continuing for many years thereafter, she spent many long hours drafting, rebutting and advising on legislative issues at the state and federal level.
Since founding Compliance Plus, Inc., Mary-Lou has been helping credit unions large and small with the development of compliance programs, providing compliance training all over the country for various leagues and credit unions speaking at numerous credit union conferences throughout the country. She has been an instructor at Regulatory Compliance Schools; she conducts dozens of webinars for credit unions throughout the county and she has written articles for Credit Union Magazine.
