Louisiana Business Annual Report FAQS


The deadline to file a Louisiana annual report is the exact anniversary date of your business’ formation each year. For example, if your company was formed on April 9, your deadline will be April 9 of each subsequent year.

The filing fees for Louisiana annual reports are $30 for any business that operates for a profit. For nonprofits, the filing fee will be $10 while charities will pay $25 as a renewal fee. Companies that pay with a credit card will also have a $5 convenience fee added to their costs.

There are no late fees associated with failing to file your Annual Report in Louisiana. However, if you are too delinquent, the state will revoke your license to operate in the state or dissolve your corporation. This can bring about heavy costs for reforming or refiling your business, and create significant challenges as you reform.

Louisiana does mail out reminder postcards to businesses. This includes your filing ID number to make it easier to complete the filing process.


Louisiana does have initial reporting. However, the initial report will actually be attached to the formation articles that you complete as you form your business. In other words, you won’t be able to start your business until the initial report is completed. Thereafter, you merely need to complete the annual report process to stay compliant.
