Maintaining a California Business

Maintaining a business in California is more than simply balancing the books. In California, entity maintenance begins almost immediately. Within 90 days of forming a corporation or LLC, you must file an Initial Statement of Information with the California Secretary of State. Then either every year (corporations) or every other year (LLCs), you must  submit additional Statements of Information and pay the $20 filing fee.

If you’ve hired us as your California registered agent, we send you annual or biennial report reminders as part of our service to help keep you on track (you can also hire us to file the reports for you for $120 when you sign up for registered agent service).

However, filing Statements of Information reports are just one of many possible business maintenance tasks you’ll encounter while operating a business in California.
