Key Talking Points:

  • What is the Corporate Transparency Act?

    • The law is meant to close a loophole that allows criminals to hide their identities using shell companies. But the legislation will also affect nearly every small business, including family offices, independent contractors, and LLCs used by mom-and-pop shop owners.

  • What Every Small Business Owner Needs to Know

    • Learn how the Corporate Transparency Act will directly impact your business structure, and which businesses are exempt.

  • The Consequences of Non-Compliance

    • The potential penalties for non-compliance are huge, including a daily fine of $500 and the possibility of a two-year prison term.

  • What You'll Need to Disclosure

    • Understand what personal information you'll be asked to provide and why, including home addresses, social security numbers, and dates of birth.

  • Business Owner Information (BOI) Form Details

    • Instructions and explanations to properly fill out the intricate Business Owner Information (BOI) form to avoid costly mistakes and delays.

  • Timeline and Deadlines

    • Understand the timeline for compliance with the Corporate Transparency Act and ensure your business is well-prepared.
