Thank you for joining us for 2024 Corporate Transparency Act: Are You Ready?.

Description

The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) came into effect as of January 1, 2024. As a result, many legal entities formed or operating in the United States are now required to file beneficial ownership information reports with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, a bureau within the United States Department of the Treasury. The CTA also requires that an attorney submitting on behalf of their client must obtain an image of the client's driver's license
