Annual reports must be filed online by May 1 to avoid a $400.00 late fee. The late fee applies for all business entities except nonprofit corporations and the late fee by statute may not be waived by the Department of State even if the entity did not receive a reminder notice. If payment is made by check or money order, the payment voucher and check or money order must be postmarked and mailed on or before May 1. Failure to file an annual report by the 3rd Friday of September will result in the administrative dissolution or revocation of the business entity on Department of State records at the close of business on the 4th Friday of September. Administratively dissolved or revoked entities may be reinstated by submitting the appropriate reinstatement application and the appropriate fees. Names of administratively dissolved or revoked business entities are made available to other parties after one calendar year.
