New Federal Reporting Requirement for Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI)

First Minnetonka City Bank would like to make you aware of reporting requirements that go into effect on January 1, 2024, that may require your business to report its beneficial ownership information to the Federal government. You do not need to take any action now.

Beginning on January 1, 2024, many companies in the United States will have to report information about their beneficial owners, i.e., the individuals who ultimately own or control the company. They will have to report the information to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). FinCEN is a bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

NOTE: This will be a free filing that companies can complete themselves. Be wary of official-looking mail from a third-party company offering to complete the beneficial ownership reporting on behalf of your company for a fee.

All questions should be directed to FinCEN and not First Minnetonka City Bank. If you have questions, contact FinCEN here.

Do I Need to Report?

Most businesses in Minnesota are small businesses that may need to file. Your company may need to report information about its beneficial owners if it is:

  1. A corporation, a limited liability company (LLC), or was otherwise created in the United States by filing a document with a secretary of state or any similar office under the law of a state or Indian tribe; or
  2. A foreign company and was registered to do business in any U.S. state or Indian tribe by such a filing.

There are 23 types of entities that are exempt from the beneficial ownership information reporting requirements. FinCEN’s Small Entity Compliance Guide includes checklists for each of the 23 exemptions that may help determine whether your company qualifies for an exemption. Visit to access the guide and check if your company is exempt.

How Do I Report?

Reporting companies will have to report beneficial ownership information electronically through FinCEN’s website:

When Do I Report?
