Did you know that businesses, not banks, received 81% of fines levied by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) last year?

Yes, OFAC violations are costing U.S. businesses hard-earned cash. From 2006 to 2017, nearly 30% of the fines levied against OFAC’s “All Other Businesses” category ranged from $100,000 to $499,999. For many companies, a penalty that hefty could be enough to put them out of business. Even if not, an OFAC violation could cause irreparable reputational harm that affects profitability for years to come. With the stakes so high, companies across all types of industries must understand the importance of OFAC compliance and take proactive steps to avoid a compliance pitfall.
