We’ve been trying to call our clients who haven’t filed their annual reports to remind them of the due date.  Unfortunately, a lot of numbers are no longer in service.  We want to be able to pick up the phone and call you when there is a deadline that we don’t want you to miss, but when we don’t have the correct contact information, that is impossible.

Please let us know if any of your contact information changes:  phone number, email address, or mailing address.  Let us be able to go the extra mile for you.  Take a moment to shoot an email to and let us know if you have changed your contact information.

Do You Have $400 to Throw Away?

Yeah, neither do we!  So we want to remind you to file your annual report by May 1st.  Every business formed prior to 2011 must file their annual report by this date.  If a report is filed late, an additional $400 penalty is levied to the standard fees.

In the past, there was a ‘loophole’ that could sometimes allow you to avoid the penalty when filing late.  That loophole was removed last year, so ALL late filings must pay the $400 late fee.  It’s definitely not worth waiting!  The standard fees are $150 for a Corporation and $138.75 for a Limited Liability Company.  If you wait until after May 1st, that means the fees are $550 and $538.75 respectively. 

When filing your annual report, this is the time to make necessary changes.  Update your company address, registered agent and manager/officer information.  Be sure to check your spelling.  If information is mistyped, an amendment must be filed, which is an additional $35.
To clarify, this is NOT your license renewal.  Your license is up for renewal in August of every EVEN numbered year.  This is to keep your business active and retain your business name with the Department of State. If you don’t file it, the State will eventually dissolve your company. If you have any confusion on this matter, you know who to ask!

Filings are done online at, but as always the gals at Licenses, Etc. would be happy to take this task off your hands!  Give us a call and we will make sure it is done correctly and on time!
