The Corporate Transparency Act What you need to know to Protect your Client


The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) - is a law that mandates that a business entity must disclose who the beneficial owners of the entity are. Any business entity formed by application is subject to the CTA these entities include Corporations (both C and S), Partnerships (both general and limited), Professional Corporations, and Limited Liability Entities (in all Forms). Why is this law here? Well there are those in congress that are concerned all business entities are not necessarily transparent or are formed by individuals trying to hide something or committing nefarious acts, associated with terrorist activities, drugs and/or the illegal funneling of monies. The CTA applies to all entities formed within the United States and foreign entities that have registered to business within the United States. The purpose of the CTA Legislation is to assist the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) in identifying entities that may be involved in money laundering, Tax Evasion, organized Crime, and/or other illegal activities.
