Completing the SAR Line-by-Line Webinar
1:00 – 2:30 pm MT

SARs are a mechanism to help detect all manner of criminal activity. Therefore, accuracy and thoroughness are preeminent concerns. This detailed presentation will explain proper field completion, address the importance of the narrative, define the SAR-related parties, and more.
 
Whether you file one suspicious activity report (SAR) or hundreds of them, proper completion and timely submission are critically important to the protection of the US (and global) financial system from the abuses of financial crime, including money laundering, terrorist financing, and other illicit financial transactions. SAR reports provide crucial information about persons and activities to law enforcement, agencies, and analysts that pursue criminal, tax, and regulatory investigations, and provide useful evidence for prosecuting money laundering and other financial crimes.

  • Use the User Guide information for proper form completion
