Attention, business owners, CPAs, and attorneys in the USA! We’re about to drop some major knowledge that will make navigating the complex world of FINCEN and IRS compliance a breeze.

Unlock the Secrets of the Beneficial Ownership Information Reporting Rule!

FinCEN, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, has just released a game-changing Small Entity Compliance Guide, designed to help small businesses like yours stay compliant with the Beneficial Ownership Information Reporting Rule (or simply, the Reporting Rule).

But what does this mean for you? Well, if you’re a small entity, you might have new compliance requirements under the Reporting Rule. The good news? FinCEN is on your side! They’re dedicated to ensuring that you, the small business community, and other reporting companies have all the necessary tools and resources at your disposal to make compliance a smooth and stress-free process.

What’s in the Reporting Rule?

The Reporting Rule mandates certain entities to file Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) reports to FinCEN. These reports include vital information about your entity and two specific categories of individuals:

– Beneficial owners
– Company applicants

Now, we know this might sound a bit overwhelming, but fear not! FinCEN’s guide breaks down these terms in detail, making it crystal clear who falls into each category. A beneficial owner, for example, is someone who owns or controls at least 25 percent of a company or has substantial control over it.

Key Dates to Remember

Mark your calendars! The Reporting Rule, which was issued on September 30, 2022, implements Section 6403 of the Corporate Transparency Act. It outlines who must file BOI reports, what information to provide, and crucially, when to file them. You can find the complete rule at 1010.380 in title 31 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), or access it electronically on FinCEN’s website. The guide references specific sections of the rule throughout, making it easy to navigate.

Starting on January 1, 2024, all BOI reports must be filed electronically using FinCEN’s secure filing system. Your data will be stored securely and shared only with authorized users for legal purposes. Rest assured, your sensitive information is in safe hands.

Stay Informed, Stay Compliant!

Wondering when you need to file a report? Here’s a quick rundown:
– Reports will be accepted starting on January 1, 2024.
– If your reporting company was created or registered before January 1, 2024, you have until January 1, 2025, to file your initial BOI reports.
– For reporting companies created or registered on or after January 1, 2024, you’ll have 90 days from the date of your company’s creation or registration to file your initial BOI reports.
