Q:  How do I correct/amend a prior SAR filing via the BSA E-Filing System if I do not have the prior DCN/BSA ID?
 
A:  If the previous DCN/BSA ID is not known, filers should enter all “zeros” (14 in total) for the previous DCN/BSA ID. This information was published in a Notice on October 31, 2011. This notice is applicable to corrections/amendments for any previous filing. The filer should complete the FinCEN SAR in its entirety, including the corrected/amended information and noting those corrections at the beginning of the narrative, save (and print, if desired) a copy of the filing, and submit the filing. The corrected/amended FinCEN SAR will be assigned a new BSA ID that will be sent to the filer in the FinCEN SAR acknowledgement. The new BSA ID will begin with the number “31.”
