NEBRASKA MONEY TRANSMITTER LICENSEES
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING CALL REPORTS
The Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance ("NDBF"), by Order of the Director effective November 9, 2018, has adopted "mandatory" Money Services Businesses ("MSB") Call Reports under the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System ("NMLS"). A copy of the Order is attached to this Notice.
Such reporting will commence with the Q4 2018 reporting period, and the initial report is due 45 days after such fourth quarter end (February 14, 2019). Previously, filing MSB Call Reports electronically through NMLS was optional in Nebraska. A "Location" report, which will be available on the NDBF website, will continue to be required to be submitted directly to the NDBF at renewal. A request for an exemption from mandatory reporting through the NMLS may be submitted to the Director.
MSB Call Reports were developed with the goal of enhancing and standardizing the information available to state regulators concerning the activities of MSB licensees, including money transmitters. Electronic submission of MSB Call Reports through the NMLS enables licensees to efficiently, effectively, and securely comply with the reporting requirements of multiple states. Licensees will be able to submit quarterly and annual information directly in NMLS. Twenty-four state agencies currently have adopted mandatory NMLS MSB Call Reports in NMLS. Training and additional materials are available in the NMLS Resource Center
