CPA Webinar Series: The Corporate Transparency Act
Holland & Knight Webinar
The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) will require certain entities – such as corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs) and other similar entities – to report to the federal government identifying information about the individuals who directly or indirectly own or control a company within scope of the new legislation.
The CTA, which enters into force on January 1, 2024, is the first ever federal legislation requiring the reporting of beneficial owners and is expected to impact more than 32 million existing businesses and over 5 million newly formed businesses per year going forward.
Please join Holland & Knight for a discussion that will address what you need to know to comply with the CTA.
