Annual Reports and Filings
Each Georgia Corporation must file an annual statement with the Georgia Secretary of State. An initial statement must be filed within 90 days after the date of incorporation.
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 more costly than the original formation of your corporation.
Georgia permits you to file your anual statement through an online data source. To file your annual registration online, CLICK HERE.
Georgia will normally send out annual report forms prior to the filing date. However, the Secretary of State 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 Secretary of State if you do not receive an annual report form.
It is important to keep the Secretary of State notified of any changes in your Principal Place of Business and Registered Agent. Official forms and filings are required for notifying the Secretary of State of these changes. Filing fees are also applicable to these notifications.
