Corporate Transparency Act Response Team

On January 1, 2021, Congress enacted the Corporate Transparency Act (“CTA”), which requires that certain companies disclose the identity of their beneficial owners and provide other information to the Department of the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (“FinCEN”) beginning January 1, 2024 (the “Reporting Rule”). 

Under the Reporting Rule, entities classified as “Reporting Companies” which are formed during the calendar year 2024 must file Beneficial Ownership Information Reports (“BOIRs”) with FinCEN within 90 days of their formation. Reporting Companies formed on or after January 1, 2025 must file BOIRs within 30 days of their formation. Reporting Companies formed prior to January 1, 2024, will have until January 1, 2025 to file their BOIRs.

To determine if your company is a “reporting company” or if your company is exempt from the reporting requirements, please view FinCEN’s Small Business Compliance Guide for more information. FinCEN has also prepared Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) in response to inquiries received relating to the Beneficial Ownership Information Reporting Rule.
