FinCEN’s Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) Reporting

Each year, tens of millions of small businesses are registered within the United States. The US government has decided that it is time to collect all information possible regarding illicit actors and other individuals who have been frequently using front companies, shell organizations, and other corporate structures for obfuscating their identities and laundering their illegal gains. This has been made possible by making beneficial ownership information reporting mandatory.

What is Beneficial Ownership Reporting?

Beneficial ownership reporting according to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) is the process of identifying information pertaining to individuals directly or indirectly owning or controlling a company. This information is provided in the Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) report and is required to prevent financing of terrorism, money laundering, tax fraud, as well as other illegal acts.

What is Beneficial Ownership?

FinCEN has defined beneficial ownership or a beneficial owner referring to an individual who directly or indirectly exercises substantial control over an entity or controls at least 25% of the ownership interests in the entity (like shareholders in a corporation). An individual may become a beneficial owner through ownership interests as well as substantial control.

Example: You have formed a C Corporation where you are the owner. When shares are distributed, you get 29 percent of the total shares. Thus, you will be considered to be a beneficial owner as you qualify in the ownership category as well as have control over the entity.

It is important to note that an entity can have multiple beneficial owners especially when the control of a company is well distributed over multiple individuals. If 4 people have 25 percent of the ownership interest in an entity then all four would be considered as beneficial owners or will be regarded to have beneficial ownership in the said company.

Which Companies Need to File?

The beneficial ownership rule states that a “reporting company” is required (mandatory) to provide both general and beneficial owner information to the U.S Department of Treasury. Certain domestic companies and foreign entities are considered to be “reporting companies” especially those that have filed specific documentation with the secretary of state or similar governing bodies in a specific state of the USA. It is also important to note that certain types of businesses are exempt from BOI reporting requirements like accounting firms.

Deadlines for Filing

FinCEN has amended the beneficial ownership information (BOI) reporting rule in order to extend the filing deadline for certain BOI reports. Beneficial ownership reporting is an important aspect and January 1, 2024, brings forth a new regulation under which millions of small business owners will have to file the beneficial ownership information report:

  • Companies formed or registered before January 1, 2024: Entities that have been formed or registered prior to January 1, 2024 will be required to file their initial beneficial ownership information report by January 1, 2025.
  • Companies formed or registered in 2024: Entities that will be formed or registered on or after January 1, 2024 and before January 1, 2025 will be required to file their beneficial ownership information report within 90 calendar days (approximately 3 months) after receiving the notice of the entity’s registration.
  • Companies formed or registered on or after January 1, 2025: Entities that will be formed or registered on or after January 1, 2025 will be required to file their beneficial ownership information report with FinCEN within 30 calendar days (approximately 1 month) after the entity’s registration is effective.

What Information needs to be reported?

If your company is qualified to file the beneficial ownership information report then according to FinCEN, you are required to furnish the following information:

Reporting Company

  • Full legal name
  • Any trade names, “doing business as” (DBA), or “trading as” (TA) names
  • Complete current US Address
  • Company’s jurisdiction of formation or registration
  • Taxpayer Identification Number

Company’s applicant who will make the reporting

  • Full legal name
  • Date of Birth
  • Residential address
  • Govt. issued ID number with image, which has not expired

Not all reporting companies are required to report information about company applicants. Only 2 individuals can register as an applicant for a company.

What are the penalties for non-compliance with BOI reporting?

The willful failure to report complete or updated beneficial ownership information to FinCEN, or an attempt to provide false or fraudulent beneficial ownership information may result in civil or criminal penalties. Civil penalties may be of up to $500 for each day that the violation continues, while criminal penalties include imprisonment for up to two years and/or a fine of up to $10,000. Senior officers of an entity that fails to file a required BOI report may be held accountable for that failure and penalized accordingly.
