Corporate Transparency Act
Corporate Transparency Act Attorneys
The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA), also known as the Anti-Money Laundering Act, was enacted in 2019 to crack down on money laundering. The CTA became effective on January 1, 2024.
The Corporate Transparency Act affects small businesses by requiring corporations, LLCs, or other entities created under the law of state to file a Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) Report with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). FinCEN estimates that 32 million businesses in the US will be subject to these reporting rules.
Businesses that were registered before January 1, 2024, will have one year to file initial reports, while businesses on or after January 1, 2024 and before January 1, 2025 will have 90 days after creation or registration to file the report. After January 1, 2025, companies will have 30 days to file the BOI report. Failure to comply with the CTA may result in up to $10,000 in fines and up to two years in jail.
As part of the CTA, business owners, and those who have substantial control over the businesses, must submit a personal identification document such as a driver’s license, residential address, and the company’s EIN.
FinCEN does not require a filing fee and the BOI only needs to be updated when there is a change in your reporting information.
