Effective January 1, 2024, the federal Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) mandates that millions of small business proprietors across the United States furnish a deeply personal report. The primary goal of the Corporate Transparency Act is to bolster efforts to deter and investigate financial malfeasance by gaining clearer insight into the ownership or management structure of companies operating within the nation.

Are you obligated to adhere to the CTA? 

Absolutely. Compliance with the Corporate Transparency Act is imperative to circumvent severe penalties, including substantial fines and potential incarceration.

What exactly is the Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) Report? 

It’s a federally mandated submission encompassing personal details about your business, encompassing general company particulars alongside the names, addresses, and photographic identification of individuals who hold at least a 25% stake in the enterprise or exert significant control over its operations. Filing a BOI is pivotal to maintaining compliance with the Corporate Transparency Act.

Keep in mind, any subsequent alterations to your Company Information necessitate the filing of another Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) Report to ensure ongoing compliance with the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA).

How do you go about filing for a BOI? 

You can complete the process at no cost through FINCEN’s dedicated BOI web portal.

Here’s what you’ll need to furnish:

• Your company’s legal name, trade names, and current US address, or that of your foreign reporting company’s U.S. headquarters.

• Jurisdiction of formation or registration and Taxpayer Identification Number.

• For each Beneficial Owner, their name, date of birth, residential address, and an identifying number from an official document such as a passport or U.S. driver’s license.

For those seeking to streamline the process and sidestep the complexities of the FINCEN website, consider hiring us to file your company’s BOI report.
