What is FinCEN and how does it apply to my business?

FinCEN is the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network of the U.S. Treasury Department. FinCEN's mission is to safeguard the financial system from illicit use, combat money laundering and its related crimes through the strategic use of financial authorities and the collection, analysis, and dissemination of financial intelligence.

The Corporate Transparency Act of 2020 (sometimes also called the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020) obligates each U.S. business to file a beneficial ownership report with FinCEN that identifies the owners of the business and the individuals who formed the business.

The Corporate Transparency Act of 2020 requires companies to file a beneficial ownership report with FinCEN. This new law applies both to companies formed in the U.S. as well as to foreign companies that are qualified to do business in the U.S. To comply, each reporting company must take several steps. First, the company must verify the identity of its beneficial owners and other controlling persons. Second, the reporting company must collect personally-identifiable information about each of these individuals. The reporting company must also collect an image file of each individual's unique identifying document. Finally, the reporting company must file the beneficial ownership report with FinCEN. Because the Act imposes criminal penalties for non-compliance, business owners must take care to file accurate and timely reports.

Timing of Beneficial Ownership Reports

The timing of a company's beneficial ownership report depends on when the company is formed. After FinCEN's regulations take effect, newly-formed reporting companies must file a first report within 14 days after their formation. However, reporting companies that exist before the effective date of the regulations will have 12 months in which to file an initial report. Also, each reporting company must file an amendment within 30 days after any change in any previously-filed information. As a result, it will be very important for reporting company managers to track carefully their filing deadlines. FinCEN Report tracks filing deadlines for reporting companies and provides timely reminders of upcoming filing obligations.


What is the Corporate Transparency Act?

Adopted into law by Congress in 2020, the Corporate Transparency Act will dramatically change the way corporations, limited liability companies and limited partnerships are formed. This new law (sometimes also called the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020) requires each company to file a beneficial ownership report with FinCEN that discloses the company’s beneficial owners and the individuals who formed the company.
