Default More FBAR

Apologies if i have missed anything on this, but is anyone else having a problem reporting FBAR this year? I loaded previous years return, edited it, and submitted and got the following message:
'IMPORTANT NOTICE: This form version is no longer accepted as of February 1, 2019. FinCEN is only accepting the latest discrete form version (open a new FBAR form to obtain the latest version ) and batch XXML files for the FinCEN FBAR. Please see Hot Topics at https://bsaefiling.fincen.treas.gov for more information'
If i open a new form, i see it is the same version (Form 114 1506-0009 1 Oct 2013) as the previous year's one.

There is a warning on the site that you can no longer just edit the previous year and submit - see the bottom of this page:. https://bsaefiling.fincen.treas.gov/...alAccounts.pdf

Yes, for whatever reason, they won't let you do a copy and paste.
Even though the form itself is the same as last year's ( in fact, I think it may date back to 2013), you need to download it anew, directly from their site, each year.
And then type in whatever info is required. But it shouldn't take more than a few minutes to complete if you have a copy of last year's completed form in front of you while you fill it in.
You might even be able to copy and paste at that point, once the (new) form has been downloaded.
Easy peasy.....

How do you end up with 22 accounts requiring FBAR? Company/Business thing?
Just curious. Not looking for specifics.

That's a different story entirely...

Bummer

Understood! (I think it was a reaction to seeing your handle..are you still on a new adventure?) I come and go. Can only take so much interaction at times.

Good info, by chance I didn’t copy last year’s FBAR and entered the forms from scratch, copying and pasting from last year.

I have started to close my UK accounts, reporting 5 USD/year interest (yes, what a high roller I am) is getting draining, and I do not even fill in the forms myself!

I do wonder if we need both personal bank accounts, but this bit is not the hassle.
I forgot to thank MidAtlantic for the info in second post - thanks
and thank you to the MMcD for the empathetic posts, and HotScot for the chat
I would also like to thank my manager, and family without whom blah blah...
