How to Start Your Own Money Transfer Business

To make sure that you will be very successful in this business venture, you will need to follow a series of steps. The first one is to get a license for money transmitting. Usually, money transfer is kept up by the individual states. In accordance with the National Money Transmitters Association, Columbia District together with other states has different acts when it comes to money transmitting. To avoid misconceptions in your business on the certain state which you will be operating, you need to pass an application online in the appropriate department concerned.

Next, you need to file the FinCEN Form 107 with the FinCEN at the Department of Treasury. This agency has the duty to classify money transmitters offering service in money transmitting. After the establishment of your money transfer business, you can already proceed to registering your business with FinCEN. Take note that this must not take later than 6 months. This is done in order to avoid any kind of illegal acts of money-laundering.

After that, you need to set up your transactions with certain banks. It is also very important for the money transfer service to carry out its fundamental functions as a business entity. So, the transaction accounts must have two mixed features that banks can only provide to the merchant accounts.

After that, you can already proceed to creating an online presence for your business. Finding a website that can cater to the needs of your business is very important. So, you are advised to conduct a research first on what website is hot and what is not provided with an excellent web-page design.
