Charleston, W.Va. – The annual report filing deadline for all corporations, limited liability companies (LLC), professional limited liability companies (PLLC), voluntary associations, and limited partnerships licensed to do business in West Virginia is quickly approaching.
Annual reports and the $25 filing fee must be received by the Secretary of State’s Office by 5:00 PM on June 30 to avoid being assessed a late fee of $100 in addition to the $25 filing fee.
If the report, filing fee, and any additional late fee are not received by close of business on October 28, organizations will be administratively dissolved or revoked.
Once an organization is revoked they cannot continue to transact business without going through a reinstatement process.
