Iran OFAC License Regulations

The U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), administers and enforces economic sanctions against groups, individuals, and countries.

The Iranian Transactions & Sanctions Regulations, Title 31 C.F.R. Part 560 (ITSR), generally prohibits the exportation, re-exportation, sale, or supply of any goods, technology, and other services, directly or indirectly, by U.S persons to Iran. A U.S, person is defined as (a) U.S. citizen, (b) U.S. green card holder or (c) U.S. businesses.

Causing many transactions such as having a bank account, employment or conducting any business in Iran by U.S. persons requires Iran OFAC specific license, exemption, or authorization by Iran OFAC general license.

Due to complexity of Iran OFAC license regulations, and potential tax and BSA/AML implications, it is advisable to consult an Iran OFAC license attorney and an international tax attorney before obtaining an Iran OFAC license or transfer of money pursuant to an Iran OFAC license.

2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)/2018 U.S. Exit

On July 14, 2015, the P5+1 (U.S., China, Russia, Britain, France, and Germany) and Iran reached JCPOA agreement which imposed strict limitations on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for easing U.S. sanctions. In 2018, the deal was largely abandoned by the former Trump administration.

As of today, July 3, 2021, President Joe Biden Administration, along with European allies, are negotiating to revive the accord due to concerns that Iran has made significant advances since it stopped abiding by the 2015 commitments.

Despite the potential lifting of some U.S. Sanctions against Iran, it is everyone’s guess how these potential changes will affect the transfer of money from Iran pursuant to Iran OFAC license by our clients under Iran OFAC license Regulations.

As an Iran OFAC license attorney and an eternal optimist, I hope for a permanent and speedy improvement between Iran and the U.S. that would grant relief for Persian-Americans seeking Iran OFAC licenses and produce much needed benefits for Iranians inside Iran.
