Small Business Guide to Washington’s New 2024 Reporting Requirements
Small businesses are the backbone of Washington State’s economy, providing innovation, employment, and community support. Yet, they often face complex legal landscapes.
The latest challenge comes in the form of a new reporting requirement, effective January 1, 2024. This change requires corporations, LLCs, and PLLCs with fewer than 20 employees to register the true name, residential address, and copies of official identification of its owners along with other information.

Understanding the New Reporting Requirement
Known by various names, including CTA Reporting, Corporate Transparency Act Reporting, BOI Reporting, Beneficial Ownership Interest Reporting, BOIR, or New FinCEN Reporting, this new mandate aims to enhance transparency and combat illicit activities. Regardless of the name it goes by, the core objective remains the same: to provide critical information about the true ownership of legal entities.
Who Needs to Report?
If your business is a corporation, LLC, or PLLC with fewer than 20 full-time employees in the United States and operates within Washington State, these new reporting requirements likely apply to you.
