Beneficial Ownership Information

Beneficial Ownership Information is a new, required filing with the Treasury Department that involves declaring the individuals who ultimately own or control a legal entity, such as a corporation or LLC. In short, it’s letting the government know who really owns or controls your company, and it is now required to prevent financial crimes like money laundering. All the information you submit is private to the Treasury Department and also kept confidential by our law firm. By entering your information here, we save you the hassle of making the filing and give you the peace of mind that it is done right. Let’s get started…


What is a Beneficial Ownership Form and who needs to file it?

If you own an entity, as of 2024, you must make this filing (unless you have an exemption). The Beneficial Ownership Information Form is a critical filing that identifies the real people who own, control, and profit from companies. This form must be submitted by most legal entities to meet U.S. Treasury Department regulations designed to prevent financial crimes such as money laundering. Any business that meets the criteria set by FinCEN is required to file, including corporations, LLCs, and other entities that operate under a layer of anonymity. By filling out our form above, we make sure that you quickly and smoothly make this filing and stay in compliance. All information you submit is completely confidential. Start here.

When do I have to file? What if I don't?

If you owned a business before 2024, then you need to make this filing by the end of the year. However, if you started a new entity after 1/1/2024, then you need to make this filing within ninety (90) days of creating your entity. this is why our LLC creation process prompts you to make this filing.
