Banking hemp-related businesses just got easier! New FinCEN guidance provides clarity and outlines specific requirements for due diligence and hemp-related SARs. Learn the ins and outs with this timely webinar.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Distinguish between a hemp business and a marijuana business under federal law
  • Understand when you should file a standard SAR in lieu of a “marijuana” SAR
  • Conduct the specific due diligence required on a hemp business
  • Explain the specific information and documentation your credit union must collect for a hemp business
  • Define the differences in your credit union’s requirements for a hemp business versus a marijuana business

WEBINAR DETAILS

It is crucial for your credit union to understand the law for banking hemp and/or marijuana businesses. On June 29, 2020, FinCEN issued a new guidance which is intended to “enhance the availability of financial services for, and the financial transparency of, hemp-related businesses.” This new guidance provides clarity to previous interagency statements. It sets forth your credit union’s specific due diligence requirements and SAR reporting requirements for hemp-related businesses. In fact, this guidance can make your credit union’s process easier, but you need to understand how it works. This webinar will explain it all in detail.
