Reports as low as $49 with our Total Compliance Package

If you conduct business in the state of Iowa, it’s important that you file a Biennial Report every other year. These reports are due by April 1. Corporations must file in even-numbered years, while all other businesses must file in odd-numbered years. It’s important that you file these documents, as the state of Iowa considers them compliance documents.

A Biennial Report informs the state of any changes to your business during the past year, such as a change in corporate structure, business address or officers and members. If you do not file these reports in a timely fashion, the state of Iowa holds the right to dissolve your company or revoke your right to conduct business in the state.

How to File Your Iowa Secretary of State Annual Report

Filing an Iowa Biennial Report is fairly straightforward, but still requires that you complete several steps. Alternately, you can let our professionals handle the entire process for you so you can focus on other aspects of your business operations.

If you do file on your own, you’ll need to visit the Iowa Secretary Of State website and then find the Biennial Report Filing Portal. From here, you must create an account by entering your filing number and the PIN that is associated with it.

The annual report page will load up, and you then provide the required information. Info that will be required includes:

  • Name of Company
  • Address of company – use the business mailing address here
  • Name and address of the company’s registered agent
  • Directors and officers if a corporation is filing
  • Signature of person filing the report

After including the information, you’ll need to enter the payment information and file the report. You can also print out the forms and submit them through the mail, but online filing is preferred.

Iowa Business Annual Report FAQS

The filing deadline is April 1 of every other year. However, the actual year will depend upon the type of business that is filing:

  • LLCs, LPs, PLLCs, and Nonprofit Entities must file by April 1 of all years ending in an odd number.
  • All Corporations including Professional Corporations must file by April 1 of all years ending in an even number.

This is regardless of the year or month that your business was formed in, and all businesses share the same deadlines based on their entity type.

The fee for any business is $30 if filed online. Mailing in the report increases the filing fee to $45. However, charities and nonprofit organizations pay nothing to file, and any Iowa Cooperative Associations will have a filing fee of just $5.

There are no late fees associated with failure to file your report. However, if you are delinquent for just a few months the state will dissolve your business and revoke your ability to operate in the state. This can lead to additional fees to return your business to full compliance.

No. Iowa does not require you to file an initial report. You simply file the biennial as required by law.

Any authorized person is allowed to file the Iowa biennial report for the company.
