“Official Department of State 2017 Annual Report Filing Notice for XXXXXX


Your 2017 Annual Report is now due.  Annual reports for all corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnerships and limited liability limited partnerships are due each year between January 1st and May 1st.  An annual report is a required report that is used to update or confirm the Florida Department of State, Division of Corporations’ records.  It is not a financial statement.

An annual report must be filed each year for your business entity to maintain an active status with the Department of State, and is required regardless of whether you need to make changes or not.  All annual reports must be filed online at http://dos.myflorida.com/sunbiz/.

Click on Annual Report under Filing Services to complete your filing.  Data displayed on the online annual report form is the most current data on file with this division.  Please review your data carefully and make changes where necessary.  Filing instructions are available on the website, and you may pay by credit card, check or through a prepaid Sunbiz E-File Account.

Remember to file on or before May 1st.  It is easy, quick and secure!  A $400 non-negotiable late fee will be imposed on any profit corporation, limited liability company, limited partnership and limited liability limited partnership annual report filed after midnight Eastern Standard Time on May 1st.  Non-profit corporations are not subject to the $400 late fee.  Any business entity which fails to file its annual report by the third Friday of September will be administratively dissolved or revoked in our records on the fourth Friday in September.

Administratively dissolved or revoked entities may be reinstated by submitting a reinstatement application and paying all associated fees, which include the reinstatement fee and annual report fees due, at the time of submission.
