Common Questions About Your Business Report


What Types of Businesses Need to File Reports?

Generally, if you’re an incorporated business — a Limited Liability Company (LLC), Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), S Corporation, or C Corporation — you will need to file a report.


Are Annual Reports Known As Anything Else?

Sometimes. A report that’s filed every two years is known as a “biennial report.” Some states call Annual Reports “statements of information.”


What Information Is Included in an Annual Report?

It varies from state to state, but it typically includes any changes to:

  • The management structure of your business (like managers, members, or directors)
  • The names or addresses of senior people in your business
  • Your business name or address
  • Your registered agent details
  • Main business activities
  • Share structures or amounts
  • Other authorized signatories
  • Some other areas

What Happens if I Don’t File a Report?

If you don’t file a report, you may have to pay a penalty fee or taxes. If you continue not to file, your business may be involuntarily dissolved, meaning it will lose its legal status (which can have serious implications).


Once I Have Filed My Official Annual Report, Do I Need to Produce Other Reports?

You may. Our compliance tool will tell you what the business administration entity in your state needs. Of course, you may also produce other annual or interim reports for your business shareholders, employees, or other stakeholders, but that will generally be defined in your operating agreement or other corporate bylaws.


Does Every State Require a Report?

No. Some states like Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Ohio, and Oklahoma don’t require a report. Enter your details into our tool above, and we'll show you the specific details for your state.


Does the Complexity of Annual Reports Vary From State to State?

Yes. Some reports are straightforward and simple, while others have much more complex and stringent requirements.


Do I Need to File a Report in Each State Where I Do Business?

Yes. You will need to file a report in each state where your business is incorporated either as a domestic or foreign entity.


Can You File My Report on My Behalf?

Yes. We have a low-cost Annual Report filing service.


Do Filing Dates Vary Between Corporations or LLCs?

Not generally, but you should still check your dates in our tools.


Are There Other Regular Filing Requirements?

Yes. You may need to file for taxes, employees, franchise fees, and other compliance requirements. These will not be covered by your Annual Report filing.
