In the state of Georgia, annual registration is the term used to indicate an annual report filing for business entities. Other states may identify these reports as annual statements or statements of information. However, the documents all have the same purpose – to comply with the law, whether you’re opening a new business or confirming that your current business still exists. By filing the annual registration with the Georgia Secretary of State, the business is confirming that the entity is still operating within the state while also providing a quick picture of the administrative details including the business name, address, management structure, and details of the registered agent.

As defined by the Secretary of State of Georgia, every business entity is required to file an annual registration. It is important to keep in mind that annual registration is separate from the initial report requirements for the business.

How to File Your Annual Report with the Georgia Secretary of State

Anyone in your company who has the authority to do so can file an annual registration. There are four different filing options offered by the state of Georgia:

  • OneClick Annual Registration: This option is ideal if you don’t need to make any changes to your registration (such as principal address location or the names and addresses of your officers or registered agent). Simply review your information for accuracy and complete your registration by paying the applicable fee online.
  • Express Annual Registration: If you need to make any changes to your business information, choose this option. Like OneClick Annual Registration, it is also done online and allows you to file your payment after you update your business information.
  • Print Annual Registration Form: Do you prefer to handle business matters through email or in person? Choosing this filing option gives you the freedom to review and edit all your information online but send a hard copy to the proper authorities for registration purposes. Once you print your registration, you’re responsible to mail the form and the appropriate fee to the Georgia Secretary of State.
  • Online Services: If you’re looking for the most comprehensive annual registration filing option, try this format. After creating an account with eCorp or entering your current login details, you’ll have access to many different services, including printing forms, filing for registration and amending your business information.
