Annual Report Management
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are annual reports? Am I required to file an annual report?
Most entity types in most states are required to make a periodic report filing with the Secretary of State (or equivalent office) in order to maintain good standing. Generally, these filings are made annually or biennially, depending upon the laws of that state.
Do you have an annual report management service?
We do offer an Annual Report Management Service (ARMS) to our registered agent clients. However, your registered agent is not responsible for filing your annual reports. With this optional service, we actively manage the annual report process for any applicable entity registrations. We create a calendar system, gather the required entity information from you, and file annual reports before they are due. If you prefer to manage your annual reports, but would like assistance submitting them for filing, you can send them to our Corporate department.
Can you file my reports in all states?
The majority of states and entity types are eligible for ARMS. However, there are certain states and entity types that are excluded from this service due to tax and other financial calculation requirements. For the majority of the excluded states and entity types, we offer a notification service in which we email report due date reminders to a designated contact within your organization.
What does your annual report management service (ARMS) encompass?
In order to fully provide you with information on ARMS, you should visit our Annual Report Management Service Details page.
Do I need to notify you when my entity information changes?
To ensure that reports are properly filed, it is paramount that you notify us in a timely manner regarding any changes to the information required for annual report filings. Please email us at email@example.com and we will gladly update our records.
Will you wait for my approval before filing a report?
ARMS is an automatic filing service. Once enrolled, we will automatically file your reports up to ninety (90) days prior to the due date unless specifically instructed otherwise.
Will you handle my business license and/or tax filings?
We do not offer business license or tax filing services.
