The Corporate Transparency Act, a groundbreaking federal law, takes effect on January 1, 2024. In the most recent installment of our series, Beneficial Ownership Reporting Under the New Corporate Transparency Act Part 5: Countdown to January 1, 2024, we discussed the reporting rules and regulations, exemptions, penalties for non-compliance, special considerations and preparation for the effective date, with a focus on updates since we presented Part 4 of the series. We included the details of FinCEN’s proposed amendment to its reporting rules to extend the filing deadline in certain circumstances and the latest sample form fields for the beneficial ownership reports and FinCEN identifier applications. We also took a deeper dive into the subsidiary exemption and other exemptions and further discussed company applicants and other parts of the Act that continue to cause confusion and concern.
