Episode 130: The New Law No One Knows About: The Corporate Transparency Act


Featuring father and son guest speakers – Garrett and Ted Sutton, we discussed the “Corporate Transparency Act”, which requires companies to report information about their owners and managers to the federal government. This new law is fairly unknown, yet penalties for noncompliance are stiff. Garrett and Ted Sutton are getting the word out about the new law, and helping people to understand it and properly report the information.

They also discussed the importance of setting up business entities properly to protect against liability. As business attorneys, they stressed the importance of maintaining a corporate veil and annual filings to protect the business. Overall, the podcast aimed to educate business owners on the legal requirements and the importance of seeking professional advice to stay protected and compliant.
