Businesses Urged to File Past Due Annual Report As Soon As Possible

From:  News Release    8/7/17   GCN

 

Jackson, Miss.—More than 25,000 businesses have not filed their Annual Report, which was due to the State on April 15, 2017.

 

Under Mississippi law, all limited liability companies (LLCs) and corporations are required to file an Annual Report online with the Secretary of State’s Office between January 1 and April 15.  Annual Reports include information about businesses’ state of incorporation, e-mail address, principal street address, registered agent, and managers and members.

 

Businesses failing to file an Annual Report will be administratively dissolved in early November 2017.

 

“An Annual Report can be filed in Mississippi at little or no cost and with the click of a mouse,” Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said. “We never want government to be a barrier to business growth, so the goal has always been to make it as easy as possible for businesses to fulfill their statutory requirements and for the public to be able to search records filed.”

 

Domestic LLCs file Annual Reports at no cost in Mississippi.  Corporate Annual Reports are $25, and foreign LLCs pay $250.

 

More than 164,700 foreign and domestic LLCs and corporations currently operate in the State.
