Ask Phil: What is FinCEN?

Today, Phil discusses the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, also known as FinCEN. 

If you’ve never heard of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, you aren’t alone. FinCEN is a bureau of the United States Department of the Treasury. The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network’s primary mission is to combat and prevent financial crimes, including money laundering, terrorist financing, and other illicit activities that involve the financial system. 

FinCEN is important to know about because they may have filing requirements that apply to small businesses. You can check if you have a filing requirement for your small business on their website, fincen.gov. If your business was founded and registered before 2024, you have until January 1, 2025, to report all beneficial ownership interest.
