All Financial Institutions are responsible for compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act.  Consumers and businesses are like are making more and more transactions year to year and as volumes increase within any payment system  then compliance risk increase at the same rate.  FIs receiving ACH transactions need to find ways to identify the structuring of transactions or laundering of money through the ACH network. There needs to be policies and procedures designed to address the issue  of compliance as it relates to the origination of P2P payments and A2A payments through the ACH network.  We focus on hot issues like direct deposit of tax returns and opening accounts online using ACH as funding method.  This session we help clarify the risks and provide ideas and sound practices to help with BSA compliance.
