Starting January 1, 2024, the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) requires most private business entities to identify and report beneficial ownership information to the federal government. Failure to comply with the CTA’s reporting requirements can result in significant civil or criminal penalties. Lawyers will play a critical role in helping businesses navigate the CTA, so you need to have a plan in place for your current and future business clients.

Be prepared to advise your clients on compliance with Your Guide to the Corporate Transparency Act – a webcast seminar and companion PDF guide that will walk you through definitions, covered entities, and reporting requirements of the CTA. 

Develop a solid understanding of: 

  • The CTA’s impact on your role in the formation of entities
  • How reporting companies, beneficial owners, company applicants, and beneficial ownership information are defined in the CTA
  • Key dates and time periods for initial and ongoing reporting
  • Which entities are required to report and which are exempt
  • What information must be reported and when 
  • What happens if an entity’s prior exemption expires
