Whether your bank opens one business account a week or several every hour, this evening program is a must for deposit staff tasked with onboarding customers. Why? The Financial Crime Enforcement Network’s (FinCEN’s) final CDD regulation, published in the Federal Register on May 11, 2016, mandates big changes to the bank’s policy and procedures related to account opening, specifically accounts for businesses. Your bank must comply no later than May 11, 2018. It will be here in no time!

Every employee responsible for onboarding new business customers and opening or modifying accounts for existing customers must have a basic understanding of business organizations in Tennessee. This state-specific program provides information about business organizations, documentation, ownership, and CIP and CDD. It lays the groundwork for in-bank training needed to implement the bank’s specific policies, procedures, and processes.


This program includes information on the following

• Importance of obtaining a properly completed, valid resolution prior to account opening
• Determining the type of business organization and documentation available in Tennessee
• Legal entity versus sole proprietorship
• For-profit versus not-for-profit entities
• Requirements of the new beneficial ownership certification
• CIP requirements for businesses, agents, beneficial owners
• Information available on the Tennessee’s Secretary of States website, and what it means
• CDD questions asked at account opening and why they are important
• Significance of establishing a “customer risk profile” at onboarding
• Importance of “high level” changes to business accounts

Please bring the forms you currently use when onboarding and opening accounts for businesses.
