Any business registered in Tennessee is required to submit an annual report to the Secretary of State each year. Tennessee requires businesses to do this for two reasons. One, it allows the state to see which businesses are still actively operating in their state. Two, it allows the state to gather critical information about a company’s corporate structure and contact information.

The state of Tennessee requires that you submit your annual report by the first day of the fourth month after the end of your fiscal year. If your fiscal year ended on December 31, 2017, your annual report would have been due on April 1, 2018. This tends to be the case for many Tennessee business, but not necessarily all of them. Fiscal years tend to vary from company to company. You should confirm your company’s fiscal year-end date before filing your annual report with the Secretary of State. You can begin filing your report the day after your fiscal year has ended.
