FINTRAC Regulatory Requirements
FAQ

 

What is FINTRAC?

Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC) is a government organization that facilitates the detection and deterrence of money laundering and financing terrorist activities.

 

Why is Telpay required to collect my business information for FINTRAC?

In consultation with FINTRAC, Telpay has been deemed as a Money Service Business (MSB). An MSB is a business that transfers funds from one individual or entity to another using an electronic funds transfer network.

Telpay registered as a Money Service Business (MSB) and as part of our FINTRAC regulatory obligations, all MSBs providing similar services in Canada are required to verify their client’s business, including its owners and directors. Therefore, any company that is applying for Telpay for Business payment service will need to complete and return a FINTRAC verification form before the application can be approved.

 

Why is the FINTRAC Information Record Form separate from Telpay’s online application process?

The information on the FINTRAC Information Record Form is very specific to FINTRAC. In order to finalize your Telpay application process, your completed FINTRAC Information Record Form must be emailed to trust@telpay.ca after you have been assigned a Telpay ACCESS number.

 

Why do I need to provide personal information such as D.O.B?

It is FINTRAC’s Know Your Customer regulatory requirement.
