Although filings have been electronic since
2011, this is the first renewal notice in which
FinCEN has reconsidered the burden of storing
reports electronically.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics,
Occupational Employment Statistics-National, May
2019, available at https://www.bls.gov/oes/
tables.htm. The most recent data from the BLS
corresponds to May 2019. For the benefits
component of total compensation, see U.S. Bureau
of Labor Statistics, Employer’s Cost per Employee
Compensation as of December 2019, available at
https://www.bls.gov/news.release/ecec.nr0.htm. The
ratio between benefits and wages for financial
activities is $15.95 (hourly benefits)/$32.05 (hourly
wages) = 0.50. The benefit factor is 1 plus the
benefit/wages ratio, or 1.50. Multiplying each
hourly wage by the benefit factor produces the
fully-loaded hourly wage per position. The May
2019 Bureau of Labor Statistics average hourly wage for ‘‘13–1041 Compliance Officer’’ is $32.20.
($32.20 × 1.50 = $48.30).
account time to store paper copies of the
FBAR form, and estimated that the
approximate recordkeeping burden was
30 minutes. Since 2011, FBARs have
been filed electronically. Electronically
filing the FBAR allows a filer to save an
electronic copy of the report, which
satisfies the recordkeeping part of the
requirement. FinCEN estimates it would
take a filer five minutes to save an
electronic copy of the FBAR.
12
In
addition to maintaining a copy of the
form, those filers who take advantage of
the special rules provisions involving 25
or more accounts are required to
maintain detailed information on those
accounts. However, FinCEN believes
that in most cases, such information
would be maintained by filers in the
ordinary course of business in the form
of periodic account statements and
other business records which would be
maintained mostly electronically. In
addition, there is no requirement in the
FBAR regulations to maintain such
information in any particular format.
For these reasons, FinCEN estimates
that the approximate FBAR
recordkeeping burden will be
approximately five minutes.
FinCEN estimates the total annual
reporting and recordkeeping burden per
FBAR filer will be one hour (55 minutes
for FBAR reporting, and five minutes for
FBAR recordkeeping).
Estimated Total Annual Reporting
and Recordkeeping Burden: 1,273,579
hours (1,273,579 FBAR filers multiplied
by one hour).
Estimated Total Annual Reporting
and Recordkeeping Cost: Of the
1,273,579 FBARs filed for foreign
financial accounts held during calendar
year 2018, 1,209,287 were filed by
individuals, and 64,292 were filed by
entities. FinCEN cannot quantify the
cost to individuals who file FBARs on
their own behalf. For entities, FinCEN
estimates the following annual burden
cost: 64,292 hours × $48.30
13
per hour
= $3,105,303.60.
An Agency may not conduct or
sponsor, and a person is not required to
respond to, a collection of information
unless the collection of information
displays a valid OMB control number.
Records required to be retained under
the BSA must be retained for five years.
General Request for Comments:
Comments submitted in response to
this notice will be summarized and/or
included in the request for OMB
approval. All comments will become a
matter of public record.
Comments are invited on: (i) Whether
the collection of information is
necessary for the proper performance of
the functions of the agency, including
whether the information shall have
practical utility; (ii) the accuracy of the
agency’s estimate of the burden of the
collection of information; (iii) ways to
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity
of the information to be collected; (iv)
ways to minimize the burden of the
collection of information on
respondents, including through the use
of automated collection techniques or
other forms of information technology;
and (v) estimates of capital or start-up
costs and costs of operation,
maintenance, and purchase of services
to provide information.
