For decades, the relative anonymity afforded by shell companies and certain limited liability companies (LLCs) has been a cause of concern for regulators and law enforcement agencies. Illicit funds, often derived from activities like money laundering, tax fraud, and even terrorism financing, could be easily concealed behind complex corporate structures. The Corporate Transparency Act (CTA), enacted in 2021 as part of the Anti-Money Laundering Act, aims to change this.

This new legislation mandates the reporting of beneficial ownership information (BOI) for a broad range of entities directly to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) � a bureau of the U.S. Treasury Department. This article will examine the CTA framework and its specific implications for U.S. manufacturers.

Most of us remember the thrill of seeing a Valentine's card left on our desks in fifth grade, the envelope weighted with candy hearts that bore messages like "BE MINE" and "TRUE LOVE." As we grew older, we picked up a bag of candy hearts at the store and helped our kids create their first Valentine's Day cards, carefully doling out candy hearts into each envelope. And many of us still leave Valentines for our favorite co-workers, neighbors and family members, a few candy hearts secured in each envelope.

ABRAMS Industries was started in Germany in 2002 by Dr. Jurgen Abrams with the goal of shaking up an already-packed steel supplier market. Facing 60 already established companies, Dr. Abrams had to do something different. From a very young age, Dr. Abrams learned the value of doing things on your own with your own two hands. At just five years old he asked his father for help with a flat tire on his bike. Instead of helping, his father taught him a lesson that would change Dr. Abrams� life forever.
