FINAL OPPORTUNITY TO FILE – 2018 Florida Annual Uniform Business Reports

The deadline to file a 2018 Florida Annual Uniform Business Report for your Corporation, Limited Liability Company, Limited Partnership, or Limited Liability Limited Partnership to maintain its active status with the State of Florida was Tuesday, May 1, 2018.  If you have not already filed a Florida Annual Report for your entity for 2018, you may still do so to avoid the administrative dissolution of the entity by filing the report by the close of business on Friday, September 21, 2018, and paying a $400 late fee in addition to the standard filing fee.  Failure to file a 2018 Florida Annual Report by Friday, September 21, 2018, for an entity will result in the entity’s administrative dissolution or revocation on September 28, 2018.  Entities that are administratively dissolved or revoked may be reinstated; however, such reinstatement will require the submission of a reinstatement application, as well as the payment of a reinstatement fee and the standard annual report fee.

Even if a third party, like Cross Street Corporate Services, LLC, serves as your entity’s registered agent, it is your responsibility to file the Annual Report with the State of Florida.  Annual Reports should be electronically filed at the Florida Department of State’s website: www.sunbiz.org.  If you need assistance, please contact us.

You may disregard this notice if your entity was formed in 2018 or has already filed a Florida Annual Report for 2018.
