You, Your Clients and Imminent Beneficial Owner Reporting to FinCEN

Event Description

 

The National Defense Authorization Act of 2020 includes provisions requiring many businesses, especially smaller businesses, to report the identities of their beneficial owners to FinCEN, an arm of the Unites States Department of the Treasury. These provisions also potentially implicate people who assist in forming and maintaining businesses, which includes attorneys. The stated purpose of the program is to prevent money laundering and to frustrate terrorists. This program will introduce you to the requirements of this new program and explore whether this means the end of the “private” company, at least with respect to the Federal Government.
