Proposed Collection; Comment Request; Bank Secrecy Act Currency Transaction Report (BCTR) Revised Layout and Proposed Additional Data Fields
FinCEN published the revised Bank Secrecy Act Currency Transaction Report (``BCTR'') in March 2011. The BCTR was designed to facilitate financial institutions reporting the most frequently encountered transaction scenarios. Since that time, FinCEN has become aware that the current report is not configured to allow for alternative reporting models that have developed in the last few years, such as reports filed by a parent company on behalf of its subsidiary. To remedy some of the limitations of the current BCTR, FinCEN now proposes an amended report. This notice does not propose any new regulatory requirements or changes to the requirements related to currency transaction reporting, but rather seeks input on technical matters designed to improve the layout and reporting of the BCTR. This request for comments covers 31 CFR 1010.310. This request for comments is made pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), Public Law 104-13, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A).
