How Does the Corporate Transparency Act Impact Small Business Owners?

Updated: Apr 4

The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA), a newly enacted law as of 2024, imposes additional reporting requirements on most small businesses. Failure to comply with these requirements can result in both monetary penalties and criminal consequences.

Enacted in 2021 with bipartisan support, the CTA aims to prevent and track financial crimes. Effective January 1, 2024, numerous small businesses in the United States are obligated to disclose their beneficial ownership information by submitting a Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) report to the U.S. Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). Companies established before January 1, 2024, have until January 1, 2025 to comply with the reporting requirements.
