You can now file your startup's BOI report through Clerky


We're thrilled to announce our new BOI reporting tool! You can now submit all your startup's beneficial ownership information to FinCEN without ever leaving Clerky. 

In case you hadn't heard, most startups formed in the US now need to submit ownership information to FinCEN, a government bureau that helps detect financial crimes. This new requirement is a consequence of the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA), which went into effect in January 2024. 

Most Clerky startups now need to file a BOI report, with limited exceptions. Please refer to the chart below for information about deadlines:

Date Incorporated Deadline
Prior to January 1, 2024 January 1, 2025
January 1, 2024 to December 31, 2024 90 days after incorporation (making March 31, 2024 the first possible due date)
On or after January 1, 2025 30 days after incorporation

The penalties for failing to file by these deadlines can be severe. That's why we've made staying compliant as easy as possible. As you approach your deadline, we'll send you reminder emails and in-app notifications. We'll also remind you to submit an updated report if we detect that you've changed any of your information, like your startup's name, address, or beneficial owners. 

When the time comes to file, you can submit your information directly from Clerky. We'll pre-fill the report with information we already have from your legal paperwork to make things as easy as possible. 

It's worth noting that a recent court decision in Alabama found the Corporate Transparency Act unconstitutional. The ruling won't affect most startups, only members of the plaintiffs in that particular lawsuit, but we're closely monitoring the development of any cases that may impact this requirement more broadly.

Do you still have questions about your startup's BOI report? Are you wondering whether you should get a FinCEN ID to make the process easier? You can find answers to these common questions and more in our help center article What is a BOI report?.
