The Corporate Transparency Act’s (CTA) new regulations require businesses to maintain transparency and accuracy in their new FinCEN BOI reports. This means filing updated reports to FinCEN whenever information changes about a reporting company or beneficial owner within 30 days of any change.
With FinCEN estimating that a staggering 50% of U.S. businesses will have to file updated reports annually and many potentially having to file multiple updates within a single year, FinCEN report filing software is essential for firms like yours in making this update process seamless and user-friendly for your clients.
FincenFetch’s online ensures that each reporting company can effortlessly update its information, promoting adherence to the Corporate Transparency Act’s stipulations and keeping clients in compliance with the CTA and free of FinCEN penalties.
With half of all U.S. businesses expected to update their reports annually, the volume of data, revisions, and administrative tasks for these companies will be substantial. Processing these reports is easy through our online FinCEN filing platform.
Page 45 of FinCEN’s “Small Entity Compliance Guide” highlights the most likely cause of updated reports.1 This page states that updated reports are due within 30 days for “any change to a beneficial owner’s name, address, or unique identifying number provided in a BOI report,” meaning that even an updated residential address for a single owner forces the entire reporting company to file a new report.
The definition of beneficial owner under FinCEN’s Reporting Rule includes those with “ownership interests” and individuals with “substantial control,” including company managers without ownership. All address changes for key staff members should be monitored to comply with FinCEN’s Reporting Rule because forgetting to file an updated report when a staff member moves homes can incur harsh penalties for non-compliance with the CTA.
Add to this the potential for several updates within a year for many businesses, and it becomes clear that the traditional methods of report processing are not viable. Efficient and user-friendly software is not just a luxury; it’s an absolute necessity for CTA compliance.

As FinCEN launches Beneficial Ownership Information Reporting on January 1st, 2024, the need for efficient and intuitive FinCEN report collection software becomes more pronounced.
