2018 Florida Statutes
663.411 Reports; records.—
(1) An international trust entity that operates an office licensed under this part shall, at such times and in such form as the commission prescribes, make written reports in the English language to the office, under the oath of one of its officers, managers, or agents transacting business in this state, showing the amount of its assets and liabilities and containing such other matters as the commission or office requires. An international trust entity that maintains two or more representative offices may consolidate such information in one report unless the office requires otherwise for purposes of its supervision of the condition and operations of each such office. The late filing of such reports is subject to an administrative fine as prescribed under s. 655.045(2). If the international trust entity fails to make such report as directed by the office or if such report contains a false statement knowingly made, the same is grounds for revocation of the license of the international trust entity.
(2) An international trust entity that operates an office licensed under this part shall cause to be kept, at a location accepted by the office:
(a) Correct and complete books and records of account of the business operations transacted by such office. All policies and procedures relating specifically to the operations of such office, as well as any existing general ledger or subsidiary accounts, must be maintained in the English language; however, any policies and procedures of the international trust entity which are not specific to the operations of such office may be maintained in a language other than English.
(b) Current copies of the charter or statement of operation and bylaws of the international trust entity, relative to the operations of the international trust company representative office, and minutes of the proceedings of its directors, officers, or committees relative to the business of the international trust company representative office. Such records may be maintained in a language other than English and must be kept pursuant to s. 655.91 and be made available to the office, upon request, at any time during regular business hours of the international trust company representative office.
(3) Any failure to keep such records as required in subsection (2) or any refusal to produce such records upon request by the office is grounds for suspension or revocation of any license issued under this part.
(4) The office may require at any time that any document not written in the English language which the office deems necessary for the purposes of its regulatory and supervisory functions be translated into English at the expense of the international trust entity.
