About 90 percent of businesses have filed reports
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Sept. 22, 2014) — Businesses that did not file an annual report with the Secretary of State’s office by the June 30 deadline have until Sept. 29 to file the report and pay the $15 filing fee or face administrative dissolution or revocation of authority to do business in Kentucky.
Pre-populated 2014 annual reports for those entities that still need to fulfill the requirement are available on the Secretary of State’s website. The online reports include information generated from the entities’ previous filings, eliminating the need to enter the same information every year. Filing online saves both businesses and the state time and money, although entities may also file and pay in person or via U.S. mail.
To date, approximately 90 percent of entities have fulfilled the requirement for 2014, with almost 78 percent filing online.
The filing requirement applies to all corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, limited liability partnerships, business trusts and professional service corporations registered in the commonwealth. All entities were sent reminders before the June 30 deadline, and those who failed to timely file were also sent a final 60-day notice.
