Frequently Asked Questions
What are the requirements to remain a registered business entity in compliance with state laws?
To remain a registered business entity in compliance with state laws, there are several requirements that must be met. Firstly, businesses must file a document known as the articles of organization with the Secretary of State. This document includes basic information about the business such as the official legal name, address, and the name and contact information of the registered agent who is authorized to accept legal service of process for the business. In addition, some states require LLCs to file an annual or biannual informational document to remain an active business entity. This report must include the legal name of the company, office address, registered agent information, and a list of members, managers, directors, or officers. Failure to submit this report can lead to administrative dissolution. Furthermore, businesses must remain in compliance with regulations set by the Secretary of State or business office in each state. Non-compliance can lead to administrative actions including dissolution. This can occur if a business fails to file state-required reports, does not maintain a registered agent, or fails to remit funds for a dishonored check or pay other required fees.
