A money services business (MSB) that conducts money transmission or currency exchange activities in Arkansas as defined by the Arkansas Uniform Money Services Act must be licensed by the Department. A licensed MSB may appoint authorized delegates to conduct money transmission on its behalf that are not individually licensed by the Department. The Department oversees the interests of Arkansas consumers who use MSBs.
The Department receives all MSB applications via the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System (NMLS).
