Bob Lamm, who leads Gunster’s Securities Law & Corporate Governance practice, recently spoke with Inc. regarding the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA), which is set to go into effect on January 1, 2024. The CTA requires companies to file a report with the U.S. Department of the Treasury identifying their individual beneficial owners, as part of a global effort to counter money laundering and terrorist financing.

Lamm notes it may be challenging for companies to initially adjust to the new rules. “The whole notion of providing beneficial ownership information is foreign to many companies,” he observes. Lamm also goes on to share what small businesses should be doing right now to prepare.
