Corporation and Limited Liability Company (LLC) Annual Reports Due

Annual reports for Florida corporations and limited liability companies are due between January 1 and May 1.  After May 1 a $400 late fee will be charged.

Don't be suckered by confusing solicitations.  I received such a solicitation from Compliance Services for my own corporation.  It looks like an official document that only charges $125.  However, this is a fee to their company and does not include the $150 fee for corporations and $138.75 fee for LLC's.

Instead hire an attorney to represent your corporation.  An attorney should not merely file your annual report.  Among the many questions, a qualified corporate attorney should interview you and look for the following issues:

  • The addition of owners, members, shareholders, officers
  • The removal of owners, members, shareholders, officers
  • The acquisition/disposition of businesses and assets
  • Location of your businesses--do you need to file as a foreign entity in another state

All Florida Limited Liability Companies (LLC) need to be examined for ramifications under the Revised Florida LLC Act, which became enacted on January 1, 2014.  Particularly, one member LLCs in Florida need to be evaluated.

Contact Loren Donald Pearson if you want to have your business reviewed as part of its annual report process.  Our flat fee for a half-hour interview and filing of annual report is $175.

The first year of Registered Agent Service for any existing client is free.  This is a $175 value.  Contact Loren Donald Pearson about registered agent service.
