Corporate Transparency Act

Myatt & Bell is pleased to offer support for business owners requiring assistance with the new reporting guidelines as defined under the Corporate Transparency Act.

The Act requires “reporting companies” to disclose information regarding its beneficial owners to the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). The piece of legislation is aimed at increasing transparency in corporate ownership to combat financial crimes like money laundering, terrorism financing, and tax evasion. You can read more about it in our February 2024 newsletter.

While FinCEN’s online e-filing system is designed to be user friendly, many business owners are opting to retain third-party service providers to help prepare and file reports on their behalf. Myatt & Bell does exactly that and will file the beneficial ownership report (BOIR) on behalf of your company. To get started, please complete the enclosed forms:
