BOI Reporting Filing

$75.00

In response to new federal reporting requirements mandated by the U.S. Congress, it’s crucial for small and mid-sized businesses to comply with the Corporate Transparency Act. This 2021 Act aims to increase transparency and combat illicit activities by requiring limited liability companies (LLCs) and small corporations to report their Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI). Starting January 1, 2024, Illinois businesses must submit this information to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) under the U.S. Department of Treasury or face severe penalties.

For just a $75 filing fee, Supernus Law can assist your business in navigating these new regulations and ensure timely and accurate reporting. By entrusting Supernus Law with your business registration, you can avoid the risk of penalties and focus on running your business.

Description

WHO IS REQUIRED TO REPORT?

Your business may be required to file a BOI report if it is:

  • a corporation, limited liability company (LLC), or other business entity that is registered
    with the Illinois Secretary of State’s Department of Business Services; OR
  • a domestic or foreign corporation, LLC, or other business entity with fewer than 20 U.S.
    employees and less than $5 million in gross receipts or sales.

Essentially, all LLCs, corporations, and other business entities filed in Illinois are required to file
a BOI report.

IS MY BUSINESS ENTITY EXEMPT?
A limited set of entities are exempt from BOI reporting. Exempt entities include tax-exempt not-
for-profits entities, publicly traded companies, banks/credit unions, investment advisors, brokers,
and entities dealing with securities, public utilities, certain types of large operating companies,

WHAT IS A BENEFICIAL OWNER?
A beneficial owner is:
(a) any individual who owns at least 25% of an entity; or
(b) any individual who has “substantial control” over the entity — meaning a senior officer,
important decision-maker, or someone who can appoint and remove officers.

A person has substantial control over an entity if:

  • that person is a senior officer such as the company’s president, chief executive officer,
    chief financial officer, chief operating officer, general counsel, or other similar officer;
  • that person has authority to appoint or remove certain officers;
  • that person is an important decision-maker for the company (anyone who is able to
    make important decisions about the company’s nature, scope, operations, finances, or
    structure);
  • the person has any other form of substantial control over the entity.

Ownership interests includes any arrangement that establishes ownership rights in the entity,
such as shares, member interests, stocks, voting rights, or any other mechanism used to establish
ownership.

    requirements, but only with the company’s permission.
