It appears that there is a scam out there regarding the annual report filing for the Department of State, Division of Corporations. Please be aware that COMPLIANCE SERVICES (not to be confused with the Florida Corporation, Compliance Services, Inc.) is mailing businesses a notice for "Annual Minutes" to be ordered for a fee of $125.
These notices are NOT from the Dept. of State, Division of Corporations. "Annual Minutes" are NOT required to be filed with any agency. Do NOT confuse these notices with the messages sent by the Division of Corporations reminding each business to file its 2012 Annual Report. If you receive this letter from COMPLIANCE SERVICES saying that you need to file your Annual Meeting Minutes--toss it out.
You DO need to file an annual report with the Department of State, Division of Corporations (AKA Sunbiz), but these are two separate issues. Annual Reports can be filed online directly at www.Sunbiz.org or you can call us for help with the filing.
