Understanding International Remittances Under 1073

Make Sure Your Financial Institution Complies

Overview Icon

An increasing number of customers need to transfer money across borders, so it’s critical that your financial institution knows how to handle international remittances. Section 1073 of the Dodd-Frank Act, by adding a few additional steps to completing those cross-border payments, increases protection for both banks and consumers. NACHA is committed to helping you understand how the regulations affect your institution.

Understanding and Complying With Section 1073

Under Section 1073 of the Dodd-Frank Act, financial institutions that generate more than 100 consumer international remittance transfers per year must comply with the revised regulations. Remittance transfers include electronic transfers like wires, ACH, prepaid card or online bill payment situations where a consumer transmits money to another country.

Additional protections under 1073 include disclosure and receipt requirements as well as error resolution and cancelation rights. Completely understanding those parameters means assessing how and when your financial institution allows international remittance transfers.
