Your company's good standing depends on this yearly filing.
States in which your corporation or LLC is formed or qualified to do business in generally require you to file an annual report.
By filing an annual report, you're providing the Secretary of State with updated information about your business. The details of your annual report may vary from state to state, but typically include information about your corporation or LLC such as:
- the names and addresses of your officers, directors, members, managers and/or trustees
- your principal business office address
- the name of your company's registered agent
- the number of shares of stock your corporation has issued
Different states charge different filing fees for annual reports. Deadlines, too, vary from state to state. Some states have only a bi-annual (every two years) filing requirement. Other states require corporations and LLCs to file an initial annual report soon after formation.
Failure to file an annual report can mean penalties, fines and loss of good standing for your business.
