Please note that Guideline 4 Implementation of a Compliance Regime and Guideline 6 Record Keeping and Client Identification have been updated to reflect new requirements coming into force on February 1, 2014.
Reports required from reporting entities
If you already have a user ID and password to access F2R, you can log on.
If you are a reporting entity, you have to send the following reports to FINTRAC, depending on your activities:
- Suspicious transaction reports
- Large cash transaction reports
- Electronic funds transfer reports
- Casino disbursement reports
If you are required to submit any of these reports to FINTRAC, you must do so electronically if you have the technical capability. There are two mechanisms for this and both require enrolment with FINTRAC:
- F2R is FINTRAC's web-based tool for reporting entities. Reporting entities filing electronically have to be enrolled with FINTRAC to use F2R.
- Batch requires programming according to FINTRAC's specifications.
Reporting entities can enter into an agreement for a service provider to send reports to FINTRAC on their behalf.
If you do not have the technical capability to report electronically, you must do so on paper.
Terrorist property reports
Unlike your other reports to FINTRAC, a terrorist property report is only submitted on paper. You cannot send this report electronically.
Alternative to large cash transaction reports
(financial entities only)
In addition to the reports listed above, FINTRAC can also receive the following:
about suspicions of money laundering or financing of terrorist activities.
