17,101 failed to report
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Oct. 3, 2014) — A little more than 17,000 business that were required to file annual reports by Sept. 29 with the Secretary of State’s office failed to do so and were administratively dissolved or had their certificates of authority revoked.
Overall, 91 percent of the nearly 204,000 entities required to file reports did so, with more than 70 percent filing online, said Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes. There were 17,101 entities that failed to file reports.
Annual reports contain information such as principal place of business, officers, and service of process address. The reports do not contain financial information. Entities’ reports are part of a searchable database at www.sos.ky.gov.
Conducting business in Kentucky after administrative dissolution or revocation of the certificate of authority may result in civil penalties. Officers of entities that were administratively dissolved or whose certificates of authority were revoked should visit www.sos.ky.gov for information about being reinstated or qualifying to do business in the commonwealth.
