ADA Asks for Extension Regarding the Corporate Transparency Act


The Corporate Transparency Act, enacted by Congress in 2021, requires certain businesses, including dental practices, to report information about their ownership to the United States Department of the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Unit. The act aims to combat money-laundering operations by increasing transparency around beneficial ownership. Dental practices meeting specific criteria, such as employing fewer than 20 people or generating less than $5 million in annual revenue, must file beneficial ownership information reports by January 1, 2025. The report includes details about the practice’s legal name, trade names, address, jurisdiction, and tax ID number. Beneficial owners, defined as individuals owning or controlling at least 25% of the business or exercising substantial control, must provide personal information like name, date of birth, residential address, and identification details.
