Corporate Transparency Act Summary

The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) represents a significant regulatory development aimed at enhancing transparency in corporate ownership within the United States. Enacted to address concerns surrounding money laundering, terrorist financing, and other illicit activities, the CTA mandates that certain small businesses, falling under the defined criteria, must report their beneficial ownership information to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) by January 1st, 2025.


This pivotal legislation is designed to curb the misuse of anonymous shell companies by requiring entities to disclose details about their ultimate beneficial owners, thereby promoting accountability and deterring illicit financial activities. Small businesses subject to the CTA are tasked with the responsibility of maintaining up-to-date and accurate beneficial ownership information, ensuring ongoing compliance with the new reporting requirements. As a result, affected businesses will need to navigate the challenges posed by increased disclosure obligations, potentially reshaping their corporate governance structures and administrative processes to align with the new regulatory landscape.

We encourage all small businesses to become familiar with the compliance requirements as soon as possible. Comprehensive information can be found here. We have created a simplified one-page summary document highlighting some main parts of the act and how Basepoint Tax & Accounting can help you with the compliance requirements of this important new requirement of business owners.
