The Montana Secretary of State requires corporations and LLCs to file an annual report to remain in good standing. Montana annual reports are compliance documents, which is why its crucial for you to submit accurate information in a timely fashion. When submitting one of these reports, you’ll include information such as your corporate structure, your registered agent, and your address. You cannot use the annual report to make any changes to your company, such as changing your company name. You should only use the annual report for changes that have already occurred.

If you are part of a partnership in Montana, you are not required to submit an annual report. Otherwise, you must submit your report by April 15. Companies only pay $20 to file this paperwork, which is a small cost compared to the cost of filing in other states.
