Anti-Money Laundering

  • International Transportation of Currency or Monetary Instruments Reporting

    FinCEN regulation 31 CFR ยง 1010.340 requires the filing of a Form 105, Report of International Transportation of Currency or Monetary Instruments (CMIR) by any person, such as an FCM, who physically transports, mails, ships, or causes to be physically transported, mailed, or shipped, currency or other monetary instrument in an aggregate amount exceeding $10,000 on any one occasion, whether that transportation is into or out of the United States. A CMIR also must be filed by any person who receives in the United States currency or other monetary instrument in an aggregate amount exceeding $10,000 that has come from outside the United States and on which no CMIR was filed. A CMIR does not need to be filed, however, if the person is a bank or broker-dealer, and the currency or other monetary instrument is mailed or shipped through the postal service or by a common carrier.
