Corporate Transparency Act (the “CTA”) requires "Reporting Companies" such as corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, and indirectly trusts, specific information regarding their "Beneficial Owners" and “Company Applicants" to US Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network ("FinCEN") to prevent use of shell companies from evading AML rules or hiding other illegal activities. The Reporting becomes effective January 1, 2024, so all practitioners who advise on estate and business planning, entity formation and governance, and general business counseling, need to be prepared.

Topics to be addressed will include:
o Legislative Overview
o Purpose and General Requirements
o Who is Required to Report
o Exemptions to Reporting
o Information to be Reported, including Applicants
o Due Dates for Reports
o Penalties
o Case Study and FAQs
