We’re Here to Help You Decipher the Corporate Transparency Act

The Corporate Transparency Act, commonly called CTA, was enacted by Congress to further corporate transparency by identifying the people behind companies. Under the CTA, business entities must disclose specific company details to FinCEN, including the company’s legal name, business address, jurisdiction, and tax identification number. Moreover, the company must reveal details regarding beneficial owners. Beneficial owners hold at least 25 percent ownership interest in the company. Such information required on reporting includes legal name, date of birth, address, and unique identification number. It may be challenging to decipher the Corporate Transparency Act, but we are here to help.

Vigilant Monitoring Required During Potential Reshaping of Nationwide Reporting Requirements

The National Small Business Association, a non-profit organization that serves as a unified advocate for small business owners across the United States, initiated legal action against the US Department of the Treasury. They argued that the mandatory disclosure rules under the Corporate Transparency Act overstep violate several constitutional amendments.

On March 1, 2024, a federal judge ruled that the Corporate Transparency Act is, in fact, unconstitutional. This ruling suspends the CTA’s enforcement of the requirement for plaintiffs to report beneficial ownership information to FinCEN. However, the verdict’s ripple effect could reshape reporting requirements for businesses nationwide. Therefore, business owners must remain vigilant and monitor developments as the legal proceedings continue through the appeals process.
