In 2022, the Tax Justice Network released its Financial Secrecy Index, ranking the United States as the most secretive financial jurisdiction in the world. The Financial Secrecy Index ranks each country based on how intensely the country’s financial and legal system allows individuals to hide and launder money extracted from around the world. The United States has moved to the top of the Financial Secrecy Index. In a bipartisan effort to combat money laundering and the concealment of illicit money through shell entities established in the U.S., including trusts, Congress enacted, on January 1, 2021, The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA). The CTA mandates the creation of a database of “Beneficial Ownership Information” (BOI) and the reporting by U.S. legal entities of beneficial ownership information to the U.S. government, effective January 1, 2024. This presentation will provide an overview of the relevant U.S. federal tax rules and planning considerations that advisors should consider when representing clients who are foreign persons and/or have foreign assets and the reporting requirements reflected in the final rule issued by the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) as mandated by the CTA.
