I just noticed a new CTR form was released in June of this year (version 1.3). We are a discrete filer. Do I need to do amendments for the CTRs done with the previous form that was used before this newer version came out? I don't really see any differences.

It's likely that the "form" is identical to version 1.2 except for some updated instructions (the comments that appear when hovering over a field).

I would recommend calling FinCEN and asking them and keeping a record of their response. I doubt you'd have to amend the reports but a call would probably help you avoid arguing about it with an auditor or examiner that felt differently.

The change is likely part of FinCEN's modernization of the private side of the filing system, which was activated in June.

The form itself is the same. What I have saved prior to the change in the website and current form both show "Version Number 1.3". I downloaded & saved the "new" form just to be safe.

I download version 1.3 three years ago (when it was easily found on the site, outside the private filing portal).
