FinCEN Updates: FinCEN Seeks Comments on the Information to be Collected from Authorized Recipients Requesting Beneficial Ownership Information

The information below is available at 

The Department of the Treasury, on behalf of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), will publish in the Federal Register a 30-day notice pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) for beneficial ownership information requests (BOI requests). This notice follows a 60-day notice on BOI requests that FinCEN previously issued for public comment.

The 30-day notice seeks comment on the information to be collected from certain authorized recipients requesting access to beneficial ownership information, consistent with the requirements of the Beneficial Ownership Information Access and Safeguards Rule.  The Corporate Transparency Act authorizes government agencies as well as financial institutions and their regulators to obtain beneficial ownership information under certain specified circumstances for national security and law enforcement purposes.

This 30-day notice gives the public an opportunity to comment on: (1) the information to be collected from certain persons requesting beneficial ownership information from FinCEN; and (2) FinCEN’s estimate of the burden involved in the information collection. Comments must be submitted by August 22, 2024.
