Beneficial Ownership

What is the Beneficial Ownership Rule?

In an effort to support their anti-corruption and AML/CFT modernization efforts, FinCEN had implemented the Corporate Transparency Act. This requires certain companies doing business in the United States to report their beneficial ownership information to FinCEN. The requirement went into effect on January 1, 2024. 

Legal Entity Includes:

  • Corporation
  • Limited Liability Company
  • Partnership
  • Other entity created by filing a public document with a Secretary of State or similar office
  • General Partnership
  • Any similar entity formed under the laws of a foreign jurisdiction that opens an account

Legal Entity Does Not Include: 

  • Sole Proprietorships or unincorporated associations
  • Refer to the section on exclusions and exempt below for more details on whether your company is impacted by this requirement

LCNB National Bank (“Financial Institution”) provides referrals to financial professionals of LPL Financial LLC (“LPL”) pursuant to an agreement that allows LPL to pay the Financial Institution for these referrals. This creates an incentive for the Financial Institution to make these referrals, resulting in a conflict of interest. The Financial Institution is not a current client of LPL for brokerage or advisory services.
