Course description

The CFPB estimates that more than 400 banks and almost 250 credit unions will benefit from its new final rule amending the Remittances Rule to increase the safe harbor limit from 100 to 500 remittances in the prior and current years. The Bureau also replaced the temporary provision expiring July 21 allowing insured depository institutions to continue using estimates of exchange rates and certain costs when funds are being sent to certain countries or recipient institutions.  

In this ONE-HOUR presentation, BOL Guru John Burnett will explain –

  • The new safe harbor limit effective July 21
  • Transitioning from the old to the new safe harbor
  • The sunset provision for the current provision allowing estimates
  • The new provision allowing estimates of exchange rates for certain countries
  • The new provision for estimating covered third-party fees for certain transfers
  • Transition rules for exchange rate and third-party fees estimates
  • Effect of Bureau’s April 10, 2020, statement on its enforcement of requirements for exact exchange rates and covered third-part fees after July 21, 2020.
