BOI Report for LLC

BOI Report for LLC

This article is a comprehensive guide to BOI report for LLC owners across all states. The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) of 2020 established the Beneficial Ownership Information Reporting (BOI) requirement as a federal law, mandating most US-based LLCs to comply with BOI reporting, with limited exceptions.

Simply put, BOI reporting applies to all LLCs, with limited exceptions. All LLCs, unless exempt must file the BOI report for LLC.

The BOI reporting requirement for LLC went into effect on January 1, 2024.

If you own or manage an LLC, understanding this BOI reporting requirement is crucial to avoid potential penalties and ensure compliance with federal law.

What is the BOI report for LLC?

To comply with the BOI reporting requirement, you must file a BOI report. 

A BOI report for LLC is a document that discloses information about the LLC and the identity and certain details of the beneficial owners of an LLC and its company applicants.

A beneficial owner is defined as any individual who, directly or indirectly, either:

  • Owns or controls at least 25% of the ownership interests of the LLC; or
  • Exercises substantial control over the LLC’s management or policies.

A company applicant for the Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) report refers to one or two individuals (maximum) who have first filed the paperwork to form or register the LLC. 

If you as an owner or manager of the LLC filed the documents to form the LLC yourself, then you are the company applicant.  If you hired someone (lawyer, accountant, etc) to form your LLC, then they are the company applicant.

The information about company applicants is only required for BOI reports filed for LLCs formed or registered after January 1, 2024. For LLCs formed before that date, company applicant information is not required at this time.

The BOI report for LLC is not an annual report. Unlike annual reports, the BOI report for LLCs is a one-time filing, only requiring updates or corrections if the previously reported information changes or needs to be corrected.  

Do I need to file a BOI report for my LLC?

Yes, you need to file a BOI report for your LLC, with limited exceptions. 

Most LLCs, regardless of size or activity, are considered “reporting companies” under the CTA and subject to the BOI reporting requirement. However, there are some exceptions, such as:

·       Certain types of reporting companies, including financial institutions and publicly traded companies;

·       LLCs formed or registered solely for holding passive investments in certain qualifying entities;

·       LLCs solely owned by certain exempt entities, such as US states or municipalities;

While the BOI reporting requirement applies to most LLCs, 23 specific categories are exempt from filing. These LLC exemptions encompass entities such as publicly traded companies, certain nonprofits, and specific financial institutions. For a comprehensive list and detailed explanations of the exemptions, please refer to guidance here: Who is Exempt from Filing a BOI Report?
