Bridgeford Trust Company will be presenting at an important and timely webinar hosted by STEP Miami – Corporate Transparency Act: A Discussion on the Impact on International Clients and More.

On December 7, 2022, FinCEN issued its first set of proposed regulations regarding the “beneficial ownership information” requirements.

During the presentation, the speakers will discuss:

  • An overview of the CTA.
  • The CTA’s impact on common trust and holding company structures used by international clients.
  • How the proposed regulations will impact law firms, trust companies, and family offices with respect to their obligations and their client obligations and what professionals and their clients should be doing to prepare.
