Frequently Asked Questions
The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) is a federal law enacted in 2021 as part of the National Defense Authorization Act. Its primary goal is to prevent money laundering, terrorism financing, and other illicit financial activities by promoting transparency within corporate structures.
The CTA requires entities to report the individuals with ownership and controlling stake to the federal government. This involves submitting beneficial ownership information (BOI) to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and notifying the agency of any changes to the information as they occur.
The reporting requirement of the CTA is effective on January 1, 2024. FinCEN will begin accepting beneficial ownership information reports on that date.
Key details required include the entity’s name, any trade or DBA names, state of formation, federal EIN, ID number from its domicile Secretary of State, the entity’s primary address within the US, full legal name of each beneficial owner, unique identifying number from an acceptable identification document, and more.
Beneficial owners have substantial control over or receive substantial economic benefits from a legal entity.
While the CTA broadly applies to corporations and LLCs, specific exemptions exist. More heavily regulated entities such as banks, credit unions, investment companies, and entities already required to report certain information to the federal government are exempt from the CTA's reporting requirements. Read our guide, Everything You Need to Know About the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) for a full list of exemptions.
Failure to comply with the CTA can result in significant penalties. These may include fines of $500 per day, up to $10,000, or even criminal charges.
For legitimate businesses, beneficial ownership reporting promotes a more transparent and trustworthy business climate. It helps prevent unfair competition from entities engaging in illicit activities, creating a more level playing field for all businesses.
Businesses can prepare by conducting an internal review of their company's structure and ownership hierarchy, collecting necessary documentation for each beneficial owner, establishing a centralized record-keeping system, ensuring regular updates, and training staff members for ongoing compliance.
