Because you are an “applicant” of a reporting company that hired FinCEN Filer, LLC, to collect the information needed to prepare and file its Corporate Transparency Act report with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (“FinCEN”) of the U.S. Treasury you must enter your information in our questionnaire. We will input the information in your approved Applicant Information Questionnaire into the reporting company’s FinCEN report that will be filed with FinCEN.
The term “applicant” means the individual who directly filed the document that created or registered the reporting company and the individual who is primarily responsible for directing or controlling the filing of the document if more than one individual is involved in the filing. This definition is designed to identify the individual who is responsible for the creation of a reporting company through the filing of formation documents, and the individual who directly submits the formation documents if that function is performed by a different person.
Before you can submit the questionnaire you must digitally sign it. By signing this questionnaire the applicant named in the questionnaire will: (1) certify that all the information in the questionnaire is true, correct, and complete, and (2) authorize the reporting company to include the applicant’s information input into the questionnaire in the reporting company’s FinCEN report filed with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network of the U.S. Treasury.
Warning: If the reporting company files a FinCEN report that contains any false information it can be fined $500/day.
