Frequently Asked Questions
An annual report is a filing that documents general information about your organization. It is required by nearly all states. While these filings are typically annual, some states require biennial filings. These are also referred to as biennial reports, periodic reports, or statements of information. An annual report generally lists the business address, registered agent, and owners and officers of the business.
Requirements vary by state, so it’s important to understand the requirements for all states in which your organization is registered to do business. Harbor Compliance can identify your requirements and due dates to manage filings going forward.
Each state has a different deadline, and the deadlines are typically determined by factors specific to each organization. Some states require a report every year, while others require a report every two years (a biennial report). Some states such as Pennsylvania require a report every ten years (a decennial report) for all entities, while certain types of entities also must file an annual report. The deadline may be a fixed date, a date based on the date of registration of the business, or calculated by a variety of other factors.
Missing a deadline can result in costly consequences such as fines, penalties, loss of good standing, or administrative dissolution. If your organization is dealing with past-due filings, Harbor Compliance can help get you back on the right path.
Filing fees vary by state and range from $15 to $800. The average state fee is approximately $80.
