If you have $10,000 or more in your foreign financial accounts, you must file FinCEN Form 114 to report foreign bank and financial accounts. FinCEN Form 114.
Individuals who are going to report foreign bank and financial accounts, abbreviated as FBAR can e-file FinCEN Form 114. There are two ways to submit this form. You can either fill out FinCEN Form 114 offline and submit it later to the BSA E-Filing System or prepare and submit at the same time.
If you’re ready to file FinCEN Form 114 in one session, e-filing through BSA E-Filing System is better but if you’re still gathering information about your foreign financial accounts, fill out FinCEN Form 114 as PDF and submit it to the system when it’s finished.
Note: Only individuals who are filing FinCEN Form 114 for themselves can file using these methods. If you’re an attorney, Certified Public Accountant, or an enrolled agent on behalf of a client, you must register to become a BSA E-Filer.
