“As anyone who has struggled to comply with a new regulation knows all too well, legislation isn’t always drafted in the most straightforward language and often contains nuances that may be difficult to decipher and apply in certain circumstances. In his recent book, “The Corporate Transparency Act Compliance Guidance,” Jonathan Wilson explains the Corporate Transparency Act and presents the law and its application in a coherent and accessible manner, making the book a valuable resource for those with limited legal knowledge as well as more experienced attorneys and practitioners. The text is clearly written, well-organized, and presents a range of practical, illustrative examples. It is a must for anyone who may be impacted by the Corporate Transparency Act or works with those who are or will be affected.”
