How to fix an accepted SAR
If a SAR you filed has an issue, it may be returned with the status
FINCEN_STATUS_OTHER which means
Accepted with warning.
When a case is
Accepted with warning you need to fix the report.
In this case, Unit21 will notify you with two things:
<sar_id>of the specific SAR filing that needs to be fixed
- the message from FinCEN regarding what needs to be fixed
Once notified, you will need to fix the specific SAR filing and submit:
- an Initial Report if it was originally an Initial report
- an Amended report if it was originally an Amended report
It is very important that you submit an Initial report if the warned SAR was an Initial report and only submit an Amended report if the warned SAR was originally an Amended report.
How to fix a report with warning
To preserve a clean record, you MUST duplicate a SAR to fix it.
To fix a report, follow these steps:
- Go to
<sar_id>with the id provided.
- Click the Duplicate button.
- In the Home form, make sure the Type of filing is the same as the original report.
- Record the
BSA idof the prior report that you are amending. You can find the
BSA idof the previous SAR by searching for it on Report Filings page.
- Ensure the report is completely filled out and has the corrections.
- Submit the fixed report.
