Annual Reports and Filings
Each Florida Corporation must file an annual statement with the Florida Department of State - Division of Corporations. Failure to file the annual report on a timely basis will lead to administrative dissolution of your Corporation. Although an administratively dissolved corporation can apply for reinstatement within certain time forms, reinstatement following administrative dissolution is very costly. The cost of reinstating an administratively dissolved corporation is many times as costly as the original formation of your corporation.
The Division of Corporations will normally send out annual report forms prior to the filing date. However, the Division of Corporations is not responsible for sending out these forms or for notifying you of your need to file an annual report. It is your responsibility to be certain that the annual report is timely filed and to contact the Division of Corporations if you do not receive an annual report form.
It is important to keep the Department of State notified of any changes in your Principal Place of Business and Registered Agent. Official forms and filings are required for notifying the Department of State of these changes. Filing fees are also applicable to these notifications.
