What Should I Do If I Need To Update The Information On The BOI Report I Filed?
If your company needs to make changes, to a report, you will have 30 days to do so. For updates, the 30-day period begins when the relevant change happens. For corrections, the 30-day timeframe starts after you become aware of, or have reason to know about, an inaccuracy in a previous report.

- Identify the Updates: Determine the specific information that needs to be updated in your BOI report. This could include changes in beneficial ownership, ownership percentages, or other relevant details.
- Prepare the Revised Report: Create a revised BOI report with the updated information. Ensure that all changes are accurately documented and that the report reflects the current state of your company’s beneficial ownership.
- Submit the Updated Report: Follow the submission procedures outlined by the regulatory authorities, typically the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). You may need to submit the updated report through the appropriate channels, which may include online filing systems or other designated methods.
- Retain Records: Keep records of both the original and updated BOI reports for your company’s records. Documentation is essential for demonstrating compliance with reporting requirements.
- Seek Legal Guidance: If you have any questions or uncertainties about the process of updating your BOI report, it’s advisable to consult with legal professionals or regulatory authorities to ensure you follow the correct procedures.
Remember that maintaining accurate and up-to-date BOI reports is essential to compliance with the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) and can help your company avoid potential penalties for non-compliance.
