Course Description

The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) enacted during 2021 requires mandatory disclosure of the beneficial owners of existing and newly formed entities. The CTA imposes a new compliance requirement for approximately 25 million existing entities. Also, the CTA provides 24 exceptions to this new reporting requirement for certain companies. Knowledge of the who, when, and how of this new reporting requirement is critical for any person involved in the application filing to form an entity. More importantly, advisors must be aware of these new reporting requirements to prevent the imposition of harsh penalties which could rise to $10,000 USD. This webinar is the first presentation ever to cover all the details of the CTA.

Learning Objectives:


  • Identify the applicability of the CTA to clients

  • Summarize the manner of the reporting requirement provided under the CTA

  • Determine if an entity is subject to an exception under the CTA
