South Dakota Business Annual Report FAQS

For most businesses, the filing fee for the report is $50. Nonprofit organizations pay $10, and LPs, GPs, and charities have no report requirements, so they avoid the fee and the process of filing entirely.

South Dakota businesses must file their annual reports by the end of their filing month. For example, if your business was formed in August, you will have the entire month of August each year to file. If you fail to file by the end of that month, you will be in noncompliance.

The South Dakota Secretary of State does not assess any late penalties. Instead, if you are 60 days late in filing, the state will dissolve your business entirely. Consequently, your business could face much larger fees as you restructure your business. In some cases, you could even lose the right to conduct business in the state under your original business name.

South Dakota does not have any initial reporting requirements.

Anyone who is authorized to do so may file an annual report on behalf of the company, and original signatures are not required.
