File Your Biennial Statement

Domestic/foreign business corporations and domestic and foreign limited liability companies are required to file a Biennial Statement every two years with the Department of State.

The filing period is the calendar month in which the original Certificate of Incorporation, Articles of Organization, or Application for Authority was filed.

Failure to file a Biennial Statement may prevent a corporation or LLC from completing certain business transactions.
