How to File an Indiana Business Entity Report

Last Updated on

Quick Reference

One of the requirements of maintaining a Limited Liability Company or corporation in Indiana is filing a Business Entity Report every two years. The Business Entity Report Form is used to confirm and update the company’s information with the Secretary of State.

What is Needed to File an Indiana Business Entity Report

The Business Entity Report can either be filed online or filing and mailing Form 48725.

The report asks for information such as:

  • Legal name of the entity
  • Principal office address of the business (No P.O. Boxes)
  • Name and street address (P.O. Boxes are not allowed) of the Indiana Registered Agent
  • Information of the Officers or Directors

Business Entity Report Cost

The cost of the biennial Indiana Business Entity Report varies by entity type. For LLCs is $50 when filing by mail or a $31 filing fee when filed online, while corporations are $20 by mail or $31 online.

Due Date

The Business Entity Report is due every 2 years, before the last day of the month the LLC or Corporation was formed.

For example, if the LLC was formed on June 12th, 2020, the first biennial Business Entity Report would be due by June 30, 2022.

The earliest the report can be filed is 1 month before the due date.

My business made little or no money. Do I still have to file the Business Entity Report?

Even if your Corporation or LLC received no income or had no business activity, the report is still required to be filed.

What happens if you don’t file the Business Entity Report on time?

There is a short grace period to get the report filed, however, the entity will lose its status of good standing and eventually will have an administrative dissolution action by the state. If the entity were to continue operating while dissolved, the owners may be held personally liable should the LLC or corporation be sued.
