For a copy of this proposed federal bill, see here.
This bill would require states to collect beneficial ownership information from applicants forming corporations or limited liability companies. The beneficial ownership information would have to: 1) identify each beneficial owner by name and current address, and 2) if the beneficial owner exercises control over the corporation or limited liability company through another legal entity, it would have to identify each such legal entity and each such beneficial owner who will use that entity to exercise control over the corporation or limited liability company.
States would also be required to collect updates of the list of beneficial owners in annual filings, or require disclosure each time a change is made in beneficial ownership.
