    (14) The 4 Ws of the Corporate Transparency Act: What You Need to Know

    The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) went into effect on January 1, 2024, and requires businesses to report certain details on individuals who are associated with that business. Failure to comply with the CTA may subject your business to criminal or civil penalties. With an interactive flair, learn whether your current business, funds or other entities must report, when they must report and what information is required to be included in those reports. Thinking about starting a new fund or other entity? Learn how the CTA could impact the formation of those new entities and the provisions that should be included in the formation documents for those entities in order to comply with the CTA.
