Business Owners & the Corporate Transparency Act

Smart – Efficient – Legal Solutions

Navigating the New Era of Business Compliance: The Corporate Transparency Act

In the world of business, the Corporate Transparency Act brings a big change, especially for small businesses and entrepreneurs. Most existing businesses and newly formed businesses will be required to file reports with FinCEN under the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA). With new rules to follow, it’s important for business owners to understand and adjust to these changes to keep their business running smoothly and legally.

At McDonough Law Group, we understand that navigating these new requirements can be daunting for business owners already burdened with the complexities of running their operations. That’s why we’re here to help. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that you not only understand these new regulations but also that your business complies with them, safeguarding you from potential legal and financial repercussions.

McDonough Law Group is offering business owners a flat-fee consultation covering the Corporate Transparency Act. This 30-minute consultation ($150) is ideal for business owners and managers to learn whether they are subject to the reporting requirements of the Corporate Transparency Act.

Filing reports with FinCEN under the CTA will apply to almost all companies, including LLCs, corporations, and other entities (Reporting Companies) that have filed or registered with the Secretary of State with a few exceptions. Reports must include the Reporting Company’s beneficial ownership information. Beneficial owners own at least 25% or have substantial control of a Reporting Company.
