Greg Baer Testifies Before Senate Banking Committee on Ending Anonymous Shell Companies

On June 20, BPI President & CEO Greg Baer testified before the Senate Banking Committee on reforms to end anonymous shell companies by requiring business owners to provide their name, date of birth, address, and driver’s license or passport number when forming a new company.

In advance of the hearing, BPI released a survey conducted by Morning Consult that suggests reform is broadly supported by small business owners. Of small business owners with an opinion, 75% said that they support providing their personal information when forming a company, and two-thirds believe that a requirement to provide personal information would not be burdensome.
