Reports as low as $49 with our Total Compliance Package

The Secretary of State’s Office in Kentucky requires businesses to file annual reports because it allows them to track changes that have occurred during the past year. When filing an annual report, you’ll indicate any changes that your business has gone through during the past year, such as a change in corporate structure or a change in your business address.

An annual report is a compliance document, and it’s important that you file the reports on-time. If you do not file on-time, the state of Kentucky has the ability to revoke your business license, which means you’ll no longer be able to do business in the state.
