Effective September 1, 2008, a Money Services Business is required to use the revised FinCEN Form 107, Registration of Money Services Business (RMSB) to register its business. FinCEN announced in April 2008 that it was revising the RMSB Form 107. This change is required to incorporate the five (5) critical fields that are now mandatory for a registration to be accepted (Legal name, Address, City, State, and EIN (entity) or SSN/ITIN (individual)). All previous versions of Form 107 will not be accepted after December 31, 2008.
Please note the "will not be accepted after" dates on the revised RMSB Form 107 are different on the WebCBRS facsimile of the form (2/29/09) and on the form posted on the FinCEN website (12/31/08). The date of December 31, 2008 was chosen for "after which previous editions will not be accepted" because it coincides with the December 31st deadline for registration.
Questions regarding the revised RMSB Form 107 may be directed to the FinCEN Regulatory Helpline at 1-800-949-2732.
