These reports are often due within the first few months of operation and require you to disclose owner or director information, the registered agent and pay small fees. Each state that requires one varies. Don’t sweat the details, let us handle it for you.

Avoid the Headaches

Each state has slightly different annual report or franchise reporting requirements. Some states only require filings every other year. While the purpose for most states is to update information on your business, some states also require revenue information. Rather than research and figure out exactly what you need, let our professionals handle it for you.

Who has to file Initial Reports?

The requirement to file an initial report (which is really any report due before your one-year anniversary) varies by state. Our automated process will notify you if there is an Initial Report due in your state. You may also check our learning center for the details in your state.

When are initial reports due?

Usually, they are due within a month or two from when you incorporate. This exact deadline varies in each state. We will send you a reminder through our automated system when your due date approaches. You can also check our learning center for more or contact one of our business professionals.

What is included in the initial report?

The complexity of the initial report varies by state. Generally speaking, you must usually provide updated information regarding location and owners. Our specialists know exactly what information you will need.

Are the initial reports available to the public?

This, too, varies by states. Rarely do the states disclose any financial information provided to them. Some states, however, do disclose ownership or other basic information. If you are concerned about that, you can visit with one of our business specialists who may help you convert your entity to a state where there are less disclosures.

What happens if I don’t timely file my initial report?

States impose fines and penalties if you fail to file your initial report or file it late. More importantly, many states will suspend or terminate your entity if you fail to make the proper filings.
