Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) Reporting Coming Soon!

Here at The Springer Company, we read lots of updates from many government agencies to make sure you have the latest information. This update comes from a division of the US Treasury called the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN for short. It's a very important update for small-business owners!

US Capitol Building

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) published its first set of guidance materials to aid the public, and in particular the small business community, in understanding upcoming beneficial ownership information (BOI) reporting requirements taking effect on January 1, 2024. The new regulations require many corporations, limited liability companies, and other entities created in or registered to do business in the United States to report information about their beneficial owners—the persons who ultimately own or control the company—to FinCEN.


“The Corporate Transparency Act, through its beneficial ownership reporting requirements, provides the historic opportunity to unmask shell companies and protect the U.S. financial system from abuse by money launderers, drug traffickers, sanctioned oligarchs, and other criminals,” said Himamauli Das, Acting Director of FinCEN. “We are committed to making this transparency process as simple as possible, particularly for small businesses who may have never heard of or interacted with FinCEN before.”


The following materials are now available on FinCEN’s beneficial ownership information reporting webpage, www.fincen.gov/boi:

Additional guidance will be published at www.fincen.gov/boi in the coming months, to include a Small Entity Compliance Guide. Please check back often for more information.


FinCEN will not be accepting any beneficial ownership information before January 1, 2024. Information on how to submit beneficial ownership information to FinCEN will be forthcoming.

 

If you have questions on how this new BOI reporting may impact your company or organization, please reach out. We've read the rules and the exceptions so you don't have to!
