ANNUAL REPORTS ARE DUE BY MAY 1 &
Businesses which file late must pay an additional $400 in late fees.
Businesses not filed by the third Friday of September of that year will be dissolved at the close of business on the fourth Friday of September by The State, and the business will be unable to legally conduct business in the state of Florida. Additional reinstatement fees may be acquired.
Please note: If your business is inactive when you place this order and needs reinstatement, we may contact you to pay additional fees required to process your order. We will not be able to proceed with filing your annual report until reinstatement fees are paid and your business is in an active status. Businesses in the State of Florida are required to do their annual filings by May 1 of every calendar year. Filings done through FCDS will include your annual filing for the calendar year and your purchase will include all fees, including annual registration fees, as well as processing fees.
** If you need an updated labor law poster, please make sure it is added to your selection below. Labor Law Posters should also be renewed every calendar year in order to remain compliant by displaying current laws and updated important information.
If you have reached this page in error, are a new business, do not need to renew / file an annual report, and only need to obtain your Certificate of Status, Labor Law Poster, and/or EIN, please go back to our homepage and select the documents you would like to obtain and you will be redirected to the proper application forms.
About Annual Report

- It updates or confirms your records with the Florida Department of State, Division of Corporations, displaying your business’s most current data on file.
- It is required, whether or not you need to make changes.
- It is not a financial statement.
- If a business files late, a $25 late fee will be imposed on you by The State.
- If you do not file within 60 days of being late, your business entity may be administratively dissolved or revoked. Businesses may acquire additional reinstatement fees.
