One of the requirements of maintaining an LLC or corporation in Oregon is filing an Annual Report. The Annual Report is used to confirm and update the company’s information each year with the Secretary of State.
What is Needed to File an Oregon Annual Report
You have the option of filing your Corporation and LLC Annual Report online or by mail. To file online, visit the Oregon Secretary of State’s website, otherwise you can download and fill out the Annual Report
The report asks for information such as:
- Secretary of State Registry Number – Find your Registry Number by entering your business name and find the first field, which is listed as “Registry Nbr”
- Legal name of the entity
- Business activity description
- Mailing address
- Contact information for the Registered Agent
- Name and address of the officers, directors, members and/or managers
Processing takes one business day when filing online or 7-10 business days when filing by mail.
Annual Report Cost
The cost to file an Annual Report for either the Corporation or LLC in Oregon is $100.
The Annual Report is due by the anniversary date of the formation of the entity. The anniversary date can be found on the filed Articles of Organization or by searching your business name on the Oregon Business Registry Database
If the Corporation or LLC was formed June 1st, 2020, the first annual report will be due June 1st, 2021.
The Secretary of State’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 fees for a late Annual Report filing, if the Annual Report isn’t filed within 45 days of the due date, the entity’s ability to operate will be revoked by the Secretary of State.
