Remittance Transfer Rule Updates
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has released an update of its small business guide regarding the international electronic money transfers rule (remittance rule).
This updated guide reflects the most recent changes to the rule and will make it easier to understand the requirements, which will take effect on Oct. 28, 2013. Although the guide is not a substitute for the rule, it highlights issues that businesses—in particular, small businesses and those that work with them—should consider while implementing the new requirements.
Along with the guide, the CFPB has posted a video that gives an overview of the rule, recent changes, and the bureau's responses to questions raised regarding interpretation and implementation.
These versions of the guide and video replace versions released in late 2012.
