What is an Annual Report?

After a business is created, most states require you to submit an annual report to keep your entity in an active state. Its main purpose is to provide the Business Division of the Secretary of State, updated information about your entity. Throughout a business entity’s life, many changes can occur. For example, a corporation’s owners, managers, registered agents, principal addresses and mailing addresses are part of information that will need to be updated in an annual report. If all your entity’s info has not changed from the previous year, you are still required to file the annual report, so the Secretary of State knows that your information is up to date. Annual reports vary from state to state including its fees, due dates and information required information.

Why is it Important?

By filing an Annual Report, you are advising the Secretary of State that your entity’s information is up to date. The Secretary of State may notify your company of issues surrounding any filing and/or the filing of any lawsuit naming your company as a party which has been served upon. If the Secretary of State cannot find your company because the address has not been updated, you run the risk of not knowing that such a lawsuit has been filed.

What Happens if You Don’t File?

If you do not file an annual report in a timely manner, the Secretary of State can administratively dissolve your company. Once, administratively dissolved, your company is no longer in good standing with the state, though it may still be sued. If your company is no longer in good standing, company business may be slowed because potential creditors or buyers may refuse to do business with a company that is not in good standing. If an administrative dissolution does occur, you must file the delinquent annual report(s) as well as an application to reinstate with the Secretary of State, which carries a filing fee as well. Most states will also require a late fee to be paid along with the delinquent annual report(s).

No longer in business?

Unfortunately, not all businesses succeed but its part of entrepreneurship. If your corporation is no longer operating, then you need to file a business dissolution. When you dissolve your entity, you are letting the Secretary of State know that you wish to no longer do business.

What is An EIN?

An Employer Identification Number (EIN), Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN), or Federal Tax Identification Number (FTIN), is like a Social Security Number (SSN) for your business. The EIN number allows the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to identify taxpayers and keep track of a business’s tax reporting.

Need An EIN?

When filing an Annual Report, some states require you to enter your Employer Identification Number (EIN). This information is then posted with state's business information on the Secretary of States database.
