In the intricate tapestry of business regulations, complying with the Beneficial Ownership Information Reporting is pivotal for your business. At SG Law Group in Miami, we believe in ensuring our clients maintain good standing with the law by ensuring they grasp the nuances of this new and critical compliance requirement.

What is Beneficial Ownership Information Reporting?

In essence, Beneficial Ownership Information Reporting mandates the disclosure of individuals who hold ultimate control over a legal entity or own at least 25% ownership of the business. These individuals, often behind the scenes, influence decision-making and resource allocation. Recognizing the significance of transparency, the federal government, specifically FinCen, are now placing greater emphasis on unmasking these beneficial owners to prevent illicit practices like money laundering and fraud.

Why is Compliance Essential?

Compliance with Beneficial Ownership Information Reporting is not merely a regulatory checkbox; it’s a safeguard against financial malfeasance. By disclosing the true influencers within an organization, businesses contribute to a more transparent and accountable financial ecosystem. SG Law Group understands that compliance isn’t just about meeting legal requirements; it’s about building trust, mitigating risks, and fostering a resilient business environment.

Failure to Comply: Serious Consequences Await

Failing to comply with Beneficial Ownership Information Reporting can lead to severe repercussions, both financially and legally. According to the latest information from FinCEN, the willful failure to report complete or updated beneficial ownership information may result in civil or criminal penalties.

Civil Penalties

Civil penalties for non-compliance can be substantial, with fines of up to $500 for each day that the violation continues. Senior officers of an entity failing to file a required BOI (Beneficial Ownership Information) report may also be held accountable for the lapse.

Criminal Penalties

The consequences become more severe in the case of willful provision of false or fraudulent beneficial ownership information. Criminal penalties may include imprisonment for up to two years and/or a fine of up to $10,000. It’s crucial to note that providing false or fraudulent beneficial ownership information extends beyond inaccurate reporting to include actions such as presenting fraudulent identifying documents.

Accountability of Senior Officers

Senior officers of an entity that fails to file a required BOI report may be held accountable for that failure, adding an extra layer of responsibility within organizations.
