Beneficial Ownership Information Rules: What CPAs Need to Know

May 17, 2023


Under the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) Corporate Transparency Act, issued in September 2022, most companies created in or registered to do business in the United States will need to report information on their beneficial owners to FinCEN starting January 1, 2024. There are stiff taxpayer penalties for noncompliance with this requirement.
