Annual Reports Were Due May 1st

If your business is a Florida corporation (INC) or limited liability company (LLC), and you did not file your company’s Annual Report by the May 1st deadline – you are late. All business entities must have filed their Annual Report with the state by May 1st to maintain an “active status” with the State of Florida.

The only exception is that corporations and LLC’s that were initially formed in 2014 do not have to file an Annual Report until next year. The Annual Report requirement does not apply to sole proprietors or general partnerships.

Not sure and would like to double-check that you have filed it? Go to the Division of Corporations’ website at www.sunbiz.org and click on “Search Our Records” and then “Inquire by Name.” Enter your company’s name, and a list will pop up. Find your company’s name in the list and click on it. This will bring up all the information about your company that the state of Florida has on file. If you scroll down towards the bottom of the screen, you will see a section called “Annual Reports” which lists all the Annual Reports your company has filed with the State of Florida. If you see an Annual Report filed for 2014, you are all set. 

If you did not file your Annual Report by May 1st, the state will charge you a $400 late fee. The state cannot waive this late fee.

Please do not confuse this Annual Report requirement with “Annual Minutes.” Some private companies are sending mail to Florida businesses offering to prepare “Annual Minutes” for their corporation for $125. Some businesses have been confused into thinking that they were satisfying their Annual Report requirement when instead they were sending $125 to a private company for corporate minutes. These companies offering “Annual Minutes” do not file your Annual Report for you, so if you have paid money for minutes, please check to make sure your 2014 Annual Report has been filed with the state.
