What is the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA)?

The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) is a U.S. federal law enacted to combat money laundering and illicit financial activities. It requires companies to disclose beneficial ownership information, including details about individuals who own or control the business, enhancing transparency and helping law enforcement trace and prevent financial crimes.

Beginning on January 1, 2024, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, FinCEN, will require businesses in all sectors to file beneficial ownership information, or BOI reports. Businesses established prior to 2024 must file BOI reports by January 1, 2025. Businesses formed in 2024 must file BOI reports within 90 days of its formation date.

FileForms understands the BOI report filing process and offers filing services to businesses in need.

Businesses utilize our platform to determine whether they are a reporting entity required to file a BOI report based on the new laws of the Corporate Transparency Act.
