BOI Reporting must be done for any entity that registers with the Secretary of State - most LLCs and corporations will need to file a report. You can review the FinCen FAQ to see if you have a reporting requirement.

  1. If your company was in existence before 1/1/2024, your report is due 1/1/2025.

  2. If your company was formed in 2024, your report is due 90 days after formation. 

  3. If your company is formed in 2025, your report will be due 30 days after formation.

Updates to a previous report due ownership changes must be filed within 30 days.
