Q: What do I enter for “Filing Name”?
A: The filing name can be any name the financial institution chooses to use to identify the specific filing (e.g., Bank CTR 4-4-2012). The process for assigning filing names is for the financial institution to decide, and can assist the financial institution in tracking its BSA filings. We recommend using a naming convention that will be easy to understand and track for recordkeeping and audit/examination purposes.
