New Corporate Transparency Act: Beneficial Owner Reporting Requirements, Civil and Criminal Penalties
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide corporate counsel with guidance on the requirements of the Corporate Transparency Act of 2021 (CTA), which would create a beneficial ownership registry within the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). This new legislation requires millions of "reporting companies" to report information on their "beneficial owners" to FinCEN and sets forth both civil and criminal penalties for those owners that fail to comply.
- Corporate Transparency Act
- Creation of Financial Crimes Enforcement Network
- Reporting requirements
- Beneficial owner
- LLCs/corporations vs. partnerships/trusts
The panel will review these and other relevant issues:
- What reporting requirements does the CTA include?
- When may CTA compliance apply to partnerships and trusts?
- What are the penalties for noncompliance?
- When are CTA regulations likely to be finalized?
