The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) was passed into law on January 1, 2021, and will go into effect on January 1, 2024. This Act requires the filing of a Beneficial Owner Information (BOI) report with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) by all “reporting companies.”
The introduction of the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) in 2021 aims to combat illicit activities through the promotion of transparency and accountability.
