Now there is a new federal rule that can put both in jeopardy.
The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has issued a Beneficial Ownership Information Reporting Requirement final rule (regulatory requirement) for all companies conducting business in the United States, effective January 1, 2024.
This new rule is a result of the bipartisan Corporate Transparency Act (CTA), enacted as a part of the larger National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, and requires Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) to be reported at the federal level. This includes information on the person that created/filed legal formation documents for the entity and those that actually control and/or own the company. This includes anyone with 25% or more ownership, Senior officers, and others with substantial control.
