What is Annual Compliance?

You gain many benefits when registering an LLC, but with those perks come responsibilities, such as filing an annual report. At Tailor Brands, we offer annual report filing services called Annual Compliance.

Annual reports are document-style business information updates that LLCs must submit to their Secretary of State. These reports contain a range of information that you must file by a specific date, both of which you must get right to maintain good standing with your state.

And good standing is imperative to your LLC’s success because you could lose your business without it. 

What is an LLC Annual Report?

An annual report is a document that details your LLC’s general information and changes over the previous year. 

The information you provide in your LLC annual report helps your state determine the current status of your business and if the business is trading according to state requirements.

The purpose of an annual report for LLC

An annual report’s primary purpose is to provide specific business data to your governing state authorities and publicly disclose your LLC’s information and conditions over the past year. 

Your LLC annual report also provides details regarding the current owners, business set-up information, and any changes since the last filing date. 

Annual LLC report requirements

Most states require you to file a report yearly. Keep in mind that filing fees and due dates vary depending on the entity type (including an LLC, corporation, and limited partnership) and whether they’re domestic or foreign to a state.

Even if your state currently does not require annual report filings, we understand that regulations can evolve over time. To ensure that you stay on top of any changes that might impact your LLC, we are committed to keeping you in the loop!

How to File an LLC Annual Report

LLC annual report filing fees range from $10 to $500, depending on your state. 

Once you’ve completed your annual report form, you must submit it to your state along with the filing fee. 

Almost all states allow you to file your LLC annual report online using their Secretary of State’s website. But some still require you to use a paper filing system that you then mail to the appropriate office.  Before you file, check with your Secretary of State’s website for details.

Filing your annual report ensures your business remains compliant with all state government regulations, which helps preserve your flow-through tax status and limited liability protection.
