The Corporate Transparency Act, which requires businesses to file a beneficial ownership information report with a bureau of the Department of Treasury known as FinCEN, takes effect on January 1, 2024.  This legislation will likely impact 32 million business entities as well as the lawyers that handle their formation.  Noncompliance may result in harsh civil and criminal penalties.

What, exactly, needs to be filed?  Who is considered a “beneficial owner”?  When are compliance materials due?  This CLE seminar provides answers to these questions, and more.  Alan Stachura, the Senior Manager of Government Relations for CT Corporation, will break down the key components of this new reporting obligation so you can move ahead with clarity, confidence, and compliance.

Attendees will learn about:
– Companies that must file and companies that are exempt
– What information must be reported
– When the initial report is due
– When a report needs to be updated or corrected
– Who is considered a beneficial owner
– Penalties for non-compliance
– What companies and law firms should be doing now to prepare
