Becoming a Registered BSA E-Filer

In order to file BSA data on behalf of an institution (i.e. filing organization), the person that will serve as the liaison between BSA E-Filing and the filing organization must enroll as the initial Supervisory User on behalf of the organization.

ATTENTION FBAR FILERS: Individuals filing the Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FinCEN Report 114 - FBAR) are NOT REQUIRED to register in order to file; instead, use the File FBAR method to file the FBAR as an individual.

Examples of institutions that file BSA data include:

  • Large institutions, such as publicly traded corporations
  • Smaller institutions, such as unincorporated sole proprietorships, personal service corporations, or similar small business entities
  • Financial institutions, such as banks, insurance companies, money services businesses, broker-dealers, and casinos
  • Non-financial institutions, such as dealers in precious metals and car dealers
