By using the Arizona corporation commission electronic filing, you'll be able to file your corporation's annual report. Filing this report is the key to maintaining your ability to do business in this state.
Arizona Corporations Annual Report
Arizona corporations must file an annual report with the Arizona Corporation Commission. To download a copy of the annual report template, you can visit the ACC website, start an online filing, and print the document. You can also request that the ACC send you a form.
Once your annual report is complete, you may file it by mail or online. Make sure to pay the $45 filing fee when submitting your corporation's annual report, and note that processing times can vary depending on your filing method. You can pay an additional $35 fee if you want expedited filing. Your corporation's annual report is due on the anniversary of its formation. If you wish, you can start your filing three months before this date.
If you fail to file your annual report, you may face a wide range of penalties. For starters, your corporation will be subject to a fee of $9 a month for every month your report is overdue. Ninety days after your report's due date, you'll receive a Notice of Pending Administrative Dissolution, which means that the state will dissolve your company in 60 days if you do not file your annual report.
Follow these tips to successfully file your annual report:
- Make sure that the filing party is a corporate officer listed on the report.
- You cannot use your annual report to alter your registered agent.
- Print a receipt when filing online, and store this receipt in your corporate records.
- Include a cover page if you are filing by mail.
Neither domestic or foreign Arizona limited liability companies have to file an annual report.
Partnership Annual Reports
Certain types of partnerships must also file an annual report in Arizona, including limited liability limited partnerships (LLLPs). As with corporations, you may file the annual report for an LLLP online or by mail. The filing fee is only $3, which is significantly lower than the corporate filing fee.
Your annual report will typically get processed within two to three weeks. You can pay $25 for expedited processing to get your report processed within 24 to 48 hours. LLLP annual reports are due every year on April 30. January 1 is the earliest date you can file your report. If you don't file on time, you'll need to pay a $25 late fee, and your partnership may lose its qualifications.
