Beneficial Owner Registration with FinCEN

During 2024 all entities registered with the Secretary of State (of any state) will be required to register with FinCEN (Financial Crimes Enforcement Network), naming their beneficial owners. There are two ways to fulfill this requirement.

Entity owners can go directly to the FinCEN website and file the form. There is no charge to file this form on their website. We have been informed that the average time to complete this form is two hours.

Since this filing borders on the practice of law, we will not be able to assist clients.  Because of this we have partnered with FileForms. They are trusted and vetted and offer two options for a fee—a guided DIY filing version with email and chat support, and a full-service option.

For more information on FileForms and the Corporate Transparency Act, please see the attached flyer. They have an early sign-up discount, but the filings will actually start after January 1, 2024.
