On Friday, January 1, 2021, the Senate voted to override President Trump’s veto of the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (“2021 NDAA”) by a vote of 81 -13.  The Senate’s override follows the House of Representatives’ override on December 28, 2020, and the 2021 NDAA is now law.  As we reported on December 23, 2020, the 2021 NDAA includes new FinCEN reporting requirements for U.S. and foreign entities to disclose information regarding the beneficial owners of reporting companies.

We will provide further coverage of the new FinCEN reporting requirements when the Treasury publishes regulations at some point over the next year.
