Annual Report FAQs
What is an annual report?
Each state requires companies that are incorporated or registered to transact business to file an annual report. Deadlines and required business information varies by state. This information allows the state to track revenue and updated information for each business within that state.
When are annual reports due?
Deadlines and filing requirements vary by state and reports are typically due annually, unless otherwise indicated. Annual report specialists have access to state deadlines and required information for certain business entities. Contact your state’s Department of Revenue, secretary of state, or your corporate services provider to obtain your entity’s annual report due date.
Who can file annual reports?
An annual report specialist within your company can prepare and file your annual reports due to the offices of the secretaries of state where your company does business. But many companies outsource this job to save time, and reduce filing errors and missed deadlines. This is also useful in preventing loss of good standing and helping to reduce the likelihood of late fees and penalties. Outsourcing your annual report filing gives you peace of mind, and allows you to focus on day-to-day business needs and goals.

What is the cost of annual report preparation and filing?
Annual report filing fees differ depending on the state, number, and type of entities, as well as services used to prepare and file. Failure to file by a state’s due date may also have an impact on the cost, as many states typically charge a late fee for reports that miss the deadline. Outsourcing your annual report preparation and filing could eliminate missing deadlines and being assessed late fees.
