ANNUAL REPORT FAQS

1When should I file my Annual Report or Statement of Information?
Many states require that annual reports be filed on each anniversary of the corporation or LLC or by some other specific date each year (such as April 15). The applicable filing period for annual reports is typically the calendar month during which the entity was filed. Failure to timely file the appropriate annual or biennial records could result in a penalty. Keep in mind that the filing times and requirements are not the same for every state, and you should confirm with the state in which you are incorporated. Please note that by using our service, Launch by LegalShield will automatically check the due dates for annual reports.
2What type of information might appear on the Annual Report or Statement of Information?
Information required on annual reports generally includes the following:
  1. The name and address of the current agent for service of process (i.e., the “Registered Agent” or “Resident Agent”);
  2. The corporation’s principal business address
  3. The names and addresses of the officers, directors, or members; and
  4. A description of the business activities being conducted. In addition, many states will require information on share issuance, assets, and property.
3What if I am not actually conducting any business with my corporation or LLC? Do I have to be actively engaged in business to file an Annual Report?
Actually, corporations and LLCs are required to file these annual reports even if they are not actively engaged in business at the time a report is due.
4Do I have to file an Annual Report in states where my company is filed as a foreign entity, or only in my home state?
Foreign Corporations and LLCs usually have the same annual obligations to the state as domestic entities. Therefore, a corporation or LLC will generally be required to file an Annual Report with any state in which it is registered as a foreign entity, in addition to any annual filings required by the corporation or LLC’s home state.
5I do not know my entity filing date or filing number. Where can I find this information?
Generally, the entity filing number and the filing date can be found our original articles of incorporation/organization. If you are unable to locate your formation documents, we will research the state database to obtain the number on your behalf
