Businesses Urged to File Past Due Annual Reports As Soon As Possible

By: Sarah Ulmer - May 21, 2019

More than 53,000 businesses have not filed their Annual Report, which was due to the State on April 15, 2019.

Under Mississippi law, all limited liability companies (LLCs) and corporations are required to file an Annual Report online with the Secretary of State’s Office between January 1 and April 15.  Annual Reports include information about businesses’ state of incorporation, e-mail address, principal street address, registered agent, and managers and members.

Businesses failing to file an Annual Report will be administratively dissolved.

“We have the lowest filing fees in the Nation, with many businesses paying zero dollars to file, and we have staff on standby to help anyone who has questions. We want to make it as easy as possible for businesses to fulfill their legal obligations and for the public to search records filed,” Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said.

Domestic LLCs file Annual Reports at no cost in Mississippi.  Corporate Annual Reports are $25, and foreign LLCs pay $250.

Approximately 180,000 foreign and domestic LLCs and corporations currently operate in the State.

For more information about Annual Reports, visit the Business Services Division’s website or call (601) 359-1633 or 1-800-256-3494.  To search business filings, visit https://corp.sos.ms.gov/corp/portal/c/page/corpBusinessIdSearch/portal.aspx?#clear=1.
