)-- Verafin Inc. (http://www.verafin.com), a leading provider of compliance, anti-money laundering (AML) and fraud detection software, today announced the release of Currency Transaction Reporting for Dummies®, Verafin Limited Edition. (http://www.verafin.com/ctr-dummies-pr) This complimentary pocketbook was created for BSA/AML compliance and risk management professionals, offering detailed instructions on how to complete the form and guidance on how an automated system can improve what is arguably one of the most important regulatory tasks required by the federal government. A currency transaction report is filed by financial institutions to FinCEN to report currency (cash or coin) transactions over $10,000 conducted by, or on behalf of, one person, as well as multiple currency transactions that aggregate to be over $10,000 in a single day.
"One of the things Verafin (http://www.verafin.com) strives to achieve is to provide valuable information to our BSA compliance professional community. From our product, to services like our Dummies series of pocketbooks, we are committed to helping people not only work more efficiently, but gain insight through new channels," said Joe Cordo, Vice President of Marketing at Verafin. "CTR for Dummies is the first in our series, and it has already seen hundreds of downloads. We look forward to continuing this new learning initiative with our future books, including FRAML for Dummies, due out later this summer."
Currency Transaction Reporting for Dummies®, Verafin Limited Edition provides people involved in a financial institution’s day-to-day compliance operations with a handy reference guide that not only helps answer any questions about CTR filing, but also allows them to gain a better understanding of FinCEN form 104. The book is divided into five parts, taking the reader from a better understanding of anti-money laundering regulations, the CTR form, and how to recognize tricky situations, on to the benefits of automations and best practices when evaluating automated solutions. Complimentary copies are available for a limited time online: http://www.verafin.com/ctr-dummies-pr
