 Money Services Businesses Call Report


 Getting Started with the MSB Call Report

The Money Services Businesses (MSB) Call Report was developed with the goal of enhancing and standardizing the information available to state regulators concerning the activities of their Money Services Businesses licensees (money transmitters, check cashers, prepaid, etc.).  Licensees will be able to complete the report directly in NMLS. The report includes national and state specific MSB activity information that is submitted on a quarterly and annual basis. For a background and overview of the NMLS MSB Call Report, see the MSB Call Report Overview and Definitions.
