Why is the Corporate Transparency Act so important?

There are over two million corporations formed in the U.S. every year. Many of these businesses have failed to disclose the identity of their beneficial owner, making it easier for them to:

  • Launder money
  • Commit tax fraud
  • Finance terrorist activities
  • Fund human and drug trafficking

The FinCEN has difficulty prosecuting these individuals due to the unavailability of information regarding their beneficial ownership. The Corporate Transparency Act will make it harder for these business owners to engage in illicit financial transactions in the future.
