Charleston, W.Va. -- It’s time to file annual reports for limited liability companies, professional limited liability companies, corporations, limited partnerships and voluntary associations.
The filing period runs from January 1 to June 30, 2010.
As required by West Virginia Code every registered limited liability company, professional limited liability company, corporation, limited partnership, business trust, or voluntary association that is authorized to transact business in the state as of and prior to December 31, 2009 must file an annual report and pay the $25 filing fee each year with the Secretary of State. The filing period began January 1 and ends at the close of business on June 30, 2010. If the annual report and payment is not received and filed by the close of business on June 30 the organization will be assessed a $100 penalty in addition to the $25 annual report fee.
The Secretary of State’s Office would like to encourage business owners to take advantage of filing their company’s report through the State’s online portal “Business for WV” (www.business4wv.com).
When filing online you will need to have your PIN (personal identification number) that is located at the top of the annual report that was mailed to the organization. Anyone wanting to file a report online may access the “business4wv” website and complete the process at their convenience, 24 hours a day seven days a week.
Online filing saves time and provides immediate and accurate integration of customers’ updates into the Secretary of State’s database. Filers will receive electronic confirmation when the Secretary of State’s Office approves the filing.
Any questions concerning filing annual reports can be answered by a staff member of the Business and Licensing Division of the Secretary of State’s Office at 304-558-8000.
