Your credit union works hard to serve members’ needs and is often asked to offer a variety of share accounts. There are specific documentation requirements for accounts established for donations, memorials, nonprofit organizations, and corporations. What questions should be asked when opening these accounts, and what type of CIP documentation is required to comply with BSA? New beneficial ownership rules become effective May 11, 2018, for covered accounts. Corporations are “legal entities” and there are many new requirements for these covered accounts. You will be required to establish who the beneficial owners are and who controls the legal entity. In addition, you will need to ask questions to establish a risk profile. Attend this session and learn how to comply with the BSA provisions for memorial accounts, nongovernment organizations, and corporations. You will learn practical tips for opening these accounts.
