MSB licensing is the next step for your money transmitting business to get into the U.S. market.
A money service business (MSB) is an individual or organization that conducts business as:
• A currency dealer or exchanger
• A check casher
• An issuer or seller of traveler´s checks, money orders, or other stored value.
Any MSB that transmits money inside the US or abroad, on behalf of another person or people is a Money Transmitter. If your business is paid to transfer money or monetary value and exceeds $1,000 in transfers on the same day and the transactions fall into the following categories: • Check Cashing • Currency Dealing or Exchange • Money Transfer Services for (any amount) • Traveler´s Checks • Money Orders.
Money transmission operations are highly regulated on both state and federal levels. Money transmitters need both federal and state licenses.
