Corporate Transparency: US Joins The Rest Of The World
Thursday, October 06, 2022, 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM EST
Category: Events

The Corporate Transparency Act was enacted into law on January 1, 2021, and proposed regulations were published on December 7, 2021. Final regulations are expected in the fall of 2022. The CTA represents the most significant reformation of the Bank Secrecy Act and related anti-money laundering rules since the US PATRIOT Act. All wealth planning and tax practitioners will need to understand the compliance obligations under the CTA, which is mainly focused on requiring corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, and indirectly trusts, to disclose information on their beneficial owners. The reporting requirements cast a broad net, can be onerous, and are riddled with exceptions. This panel will cover the history behind the enactment of the CTA, key provisions under the CTA and recently issued proposed regulations, and practical considerations on how practitioners can comply with the guidance available to date.
