A major additional reporting requirement with the U.S. Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) will take effect next year -- the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA). The CTA mandated the creation of a beneficial ownership information database, in an effort to fight money laundering and the use of shell companies to conceal finances. It will impact virtually all your corporate and LLC (including single-member LLC) clients. Learn about the CTA, the new reporting requirements and what you should know to help your clients.
