CRM 503 - Currency Reporting Requirements
The University must report any receipt of more than $10,000.00 in cash or foreign currency on Form 8300. The reporting requirement applies to a single payment in excess of $10,000, or a payment that causes the aggregate amount received in the previous 12-month period to exceed $10,000. The receipt of any such payment(s) should be reported to the Office of Controller, which will file the Form 8300, within one business day of receipt.
For Form 8300 reporting purposes, cash is defined as currency, coin, cashiers checks, money orders and travelers checks but not personal checks.
