2019 Florida Annual Uniform Business Reports

The deadline to file a 2019 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 is May 1, 2019.

In the coming days, you should receive an official email from the Florida Secretary of State reminding you to go online and file your entity’s annual report at www.sunbiz.org.

Unfortunately, this year there are also a number of private companies that are sending official looking letters and emails to entities in an effort to mislead people into believing that they are filing their entity’s annual report with the Florida Secretary of State.  These companies are not affiliated with the Florida Secretary of State and in some cases are charging $100 or more above the fees charged if you go directly to www.sunbiz.org to file your entity’s annual report.

Among the misleading letters and emails to be on the look out for and disregard are a letter from Workplace Compliance Services titled “2019-Annual Report Instruction Form” and an email from Florida Business Filings Co. titled “2019-Annual Report Reminder.”

If you have specific questions regarding filing your annual report, you can speak to someone with the Florida Secretary of State’s Division of Corporations by calling 850-245-6000, or visit their website for answers to a number of commonly asked questions.

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you in filing your entity’s annual report.

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.
