ANNUAL REPORTS & COMPLIANCE
What happens if I do not file an Annual Report?
By law, each state requiring the filing of an Annual Report has the authority to Revoke, Administratively Dissolve, and Cancel a corporation's Certificate of Authority and Right To Do Business as well as pursue relief through the Attorney General's Office for failure to file. The states have the right to impose severe financial penalties, interest, and additional fees to reinstate a Certificate of Authority or Charter. Once a company's Certificate of Authority is revoked, it can be denied access to the courts to pursue collection of debts, bring other legal actions, contracts can be in jeopardy, licenses, and it cannot obtain a Certificate of Good Standing from the state for financial closings or other transactional matters.

Why should I hire ARMS to file my Annual Reports?
Since the states began requiring the filing of annual reports, someone at each company has always been responsible for this annual procedure. Over the years, due dates have changed, forms have changed, and the filing procedures have changed as each state is different. This has meant more employee time and effort spent keeping up with each state and the changes. It has become an expensive and cumbersome problem for many companies especially public ones who are required to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley disclosures. Our Annual Report Service provides a Management Solution for a company to reduce internal expenses and outsource inefficiency. Our Annual Report Service manages the entire process, very little customer time is required and employees are available to work on more pressing and important matters.

What if I have missed some annual report filings in the past?
Our Annual Report Service includes a free status check on every company we bring into our service. We check every state in which each company is authorized to do business and if any annual reports are found to be missing, we immediately determine the nature of the deficiency and obtain whatever is necessary to bring the company back into compliance.

Can you prepare some of the more complex annual report forms like Illinois, Wyoming & Michigan?
Yes. States like Illinois, Wyoming & Michigan have stringent guidelines for preparing their annual reports which can be confusing and time consuming. Our knowledgeable compliance specialists will prepare your annual report to meet all the state requirements. Click Here to view a list of annual reports we can manage.

HOW DOES IT WORK?  

How do we get started using your Annual Report Service?

All we need is a list of all entities and the states in which each is authorized so that we can begin the status check.

What happens after that?
We will email the ARMS Control Setup Sheet in order to obtain information necessary to begin preparing the forms (Officer/Director Info, Federal ID numbers, etc)

How soon before the Due Dates do you prepare the Annual Reports?
Two months prior the due date.

Will you follow up after you have sent us Annual Report forms for execution?
Yes. We have an automated "Reminder Service."

Are there states that you cannot prepare Annual Reports for?
Yes, in states, such as Alabama & Texas where they require detailed financial information (Tax Returns) we will inform the client of the due date and provide them with the form. Once the completed form is returned to us for filing, we will file and manage the information on our web site. Some reports may require that the client complete a minimal amount of information. In such a case, a note will be attached to the report.

What do we do with Annual Report forms we receive directly from the state?
We would appreciate the forms being sent to us; however, it is not required.

If Annual Reports are filed online, will we see the annual report before you file it?
Yes. For all online filings, you will receive a copy of the data that we will be transmitting to the state for your approval.

Who signs the Annual Reports?
Each Annual Registration will be sent with a cover letter notifying you of who should sign the Annual Registration.

How to communicate with you?
You can call 877-ASK-ARMS (877-275-2767) or email
info@annualregistration.com. During regular business hours you can always speak with someone. And we respond immediately to all emails.
