Annual Reports and Filings
Each New York Corporation is required to file a Biennial Statement setting forth: (a) the name and respective business address of its chief executive officer; (b) the street address of its principal executive office; and (c) the post office address within or without this state to which the Secretary of State shall mail a copy of any process against it served upon him or her.
The filing period for a corporation is the calendar month in which its original Certificate of Incorporation or Application for Authority was filed (or the effective date thereof, if stated). The Biennial Statement is made on a form provided by the Secretary of State which is automatically mailed to the most recent principal place of business on record; if none is listed, the form is mailed to the address for the Secretary of State to forward service of process.
The statutory filing fee is $9. A corporation wishing to file a Biennial Statement that has not received a form may request one by phone ((518) 473-2492) or in writing; the corporation's name must be included with the request.
Failure to file the Biennial Statement on a timely basis will lead to administrative dissolution of your Corporation. Therefore it is crucial that you closely follow the requirements for filing these statements.
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.
