On September 29, 2022, the U.S. Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) issued a rule requiring most corporations, limited liability companies, and other entities created in or registered to do business in the United States to report personal identifying information about their company owners to FinCEN. Companies in existence before January 1, 2024 will be required to file a report no later than January 1, 2025. Designed to protect U.S. national security and strengthen the integrity and transparency of the U.S. financial system, the rule will help stop those who would use anonymous shell companies from hiding their illicit proceeds.
