> Webinar: Completing the New CTR Line-by-Line: People, Businesses & Fiduciaries

Tuesday, November 13, 2012
3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
4:30 PM


The deadline for using FinCEN’s new CTR is March 31, 2013.

As you work with the new CTR, questions about the form and its completion will arise. This informative program will cover the new CTR line-by-line. You will receive a practical guide with over 50 examples of completed CTRs – from the simplest to the most-complicated transactions. This valuable resource will step you through many common (and not so common) member transactions involving the CTR.

In addition, this webinar will examine different types of entities and how to complete the CTR if any entities/people have deposits over $10,000. Special fiduciary relationships (e.g. UTMA, attorneys-in-fact, guardianships, etc.) and how to handle large deposits or withdrawals with these accounts will be addressed. Join us for a comprehensive look at the new CTR.


  • Distinction between an amended and a corrected CTR
  • Difference in aggregated and multiple transactions
  • Your RSSD number and how to find it
  • Documenting the branches where the activity occurred
  • How do we complete a CTR for:

o   IOLTA accounts

o   Sole proprietors when an employee makes the deposit

o   Single-member LLCs

o   Joint accounts on deposits and withdrawals

o   Living trusts

  • What happens if an attorney-in-fact makes the deposit for your accountholder?
  • Completing a CTR for multiple transactions when the parties are unknown
  • What fields are required and what fields are not on the CTR?
  • How to know if there is an error on the CTR
  • What if the accountholder is retired and we do not have an occupation?
  • All of these issues and more


This informative session will be useful for tellers, head tellers, cashiers, branch operations, branch managers, BSA operations, and any staff responsible for completing or gathering information on the new CTR.
