Wolters Kluwer brings Beneficial Ownership Information support to Legisway
Global News

WK logoA new feature from Wolters Kluwer’s Legal & Regulatory division assists users of Legisway – the company’s all-in-one SaaS legal information and contract management solution – in their efforts to comply with the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA). Users will be able to engage with a familiar interface to identify and curate beneficial ownership information (BOI). 

The CTA took effect on January 1, 2024 and requires applicable U.S. businesses to collect, document, and submit previously unreported beneficial ownership information to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). This BOI reporting requirement applies to a wide range of domestic and foreign entities registered in the U.S., as specified by FinCEN. 


Entities can use Legisway to identity both companies impacted by the CTA and shareholders who qualify as beneficial owners. Legisway will include options for exporting information, including for the purpose of importing BOI into a BOI filing solution. The information needed for reporting can also be curated and stored within the solution’s secure environment.

“Many corporate legal departments already use Legisway to manage legal data all in one place including contracts, matters and entity information.” said Ken Crutchfield, Vice President & General Manager of Legal Markets at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. “It is natural to add functionality for storing Beneficial Ownership Information in Legisway to support the need to track reporting entities, beneficial owners and even applicants in the same application used for other legal data.” 


Earlier this month, Wolters Kluwer launched a BOI expert solution for filing and on-going compliance, spanning its Financial & Corporate Compliance (FCC) and Tax & Accounting (TAA) divisions. Wolters Kluwer CT Corporation, a business of FCC, and its partners introduced a Beneficial Ownership Platform leveraging a secure, streamlined workflow to simplify filing and compliance for both single entity as well as multiple entity filers. For accounting firms and their clients, TAA has launched the CCH Axcess™ Beneficial Ownership solution, which automates the beneficial ownership information filing process for accounting firms that need to file large volumes of reports.

Legisway is Wolters Kluwer’s all-in-one SaaS platform focused on the needs of the corporate law department across contracts, intellectual property, real estate, entity management and compliance. The solution offers truly flexible enterprise legal information management that can be configured, helping corporate law departments enhance collaboration with the business and minimize risk.
