Beneficial Ownership Information Report

What's this new BOI Law about? 


New law affects all small business owners

The Corporate Transparency Act, passed in 2021, requires all new and existing legal entities (including LLCs and corporations) to file a Beneficial Ownership Information Report with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). 

You must disclose all Beneficial Owners

The BOI Report will require you to disclose all "beneficial owners," including any legal owners with 25% or more equity, senior officers like the CEO, COO, and CFO, and others with "substantial control." 

It will cost you $500/day if you don't file on time

If you fail to file on time, you'll face penalties of $500 per day, up to a total of $10,000 and/or two years in jail! These penalties can be charged against both the entity and the individual beneficial owners. 

You'll have 90 days or 1 year to file

All legal entities already in existence on January 1, 2024 have one year to file a Beneficial Ownership Information Report.  New entities formed in 2024 have 90 days after formation to file. (In 2025, new entities will have 30 days to file!)

Hi, I'm Meredith!

Over my 15 years in business law, I’ve represented hundreds of entrepreneurs with everything from starting a business to cashing out for millions, and lots of milestones in between.  (See my Awards, Publications, and Representative Transactions.

I founded A Better Business in 2019 to change the way business owners and entrepreneurs access legal advice. I believe affordable, accessible legal advice should be available to every business owner, no matter how small your business is or how busy you are.  

When the Corporate Transparency Act was passed, I knew my clients would need a quick and affordable way to comply with the new law.  That's why we created the BOI Compliance Package and the free BOI Quiz!
