FINTRAC has published a Notice on its website detailing its plan for the implementation of new reporting obligations related to the forthcoming regulatory amendments. The message pertains to work under way in relation to the delivery of updated reporting forms, report specifications and over 60 guidance documents. The schedule provides reporting entities with sufficient time to update their systems to comply with reporting obligations related to the amended regulations, and to allow FINTRAC to make necessary modifications to its reporting forms, reporting specifications and guidance documents.
The plan follows FINTRAC’s November 16, 2020 Notice on flexibility regarding the assessment and enforcement of the forthcoming regulatory amendments.
FINTRAC is committed to working with businesses to assist them in meeting their compliance obligations under the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act.
