One of the requirements of maintaining an LLC or corporation in New Jersey is filing an Annual Report. The Annual Report is used to confirm and update the company’s information each year with the Department of the Treasury.
What is Needed to File a New Jersey Annual Report
The only way to file the Annual Report is online through the New Jersey Department of the Treasury’s website.
The report asks for information such as:
- Legal name of the entity
- Business address
- Contact information for the Registered Agent
- Name and address of the officers, directors, members and/or managers
Annual Report Cost
The cost to file an Annual Report for either the Corporation or LLC in New Jersey is $75.
The Annual Report is due by the last day of the entity’s anniversary month. You can find the date of formation on your filed Certificate of Formation or by searching for your business name in the Department of the Treasury entity database.
For example, if your LLC or Corporation was formed January 1st, 2020, the first Annual Report will be due January 31st 2021. Filings can be made 90 days in advance of the due date.
The Department of the Treasury’s office emails a reminder in advance of the Annual Report due date. Even though a reminder is sent, it’s important to make an additional reminder for yourself should you not receive it.
My business made little or no money. Do I still have to file the Annual Report?
Even if your Corporation or LLC received no income or had no business activity, the Annual Report is still required to be filed.
What happens if you don’t file the Annual Report on time?
While there are no late fees if the Annual Report isn’t filed on time, if the report isn’t filed within two years, the entity will be administratively dissolved by the Department of the Treasury.
