Reports as low as $49 with our Total Compliance Package

Active companies in Vermont must declare to the Secretary of State that they are still conducting business. The Secretary of State requires businesses to do so to keep their records up to date. Vermont uses annual reports as a compliance measure to help monitor the businesses in the state. Companies are required to update any information regarding their corporate structure when they file an annual report with the state.

When founders start a business in Vermont, they are not subject to any initial reporting requirements. This means that they do not have to submit an annual report when they first register with the state. However, they will have to file an annual report within two-and-a-half months after their first fiscal year has concluded. For many companies, the fiscal year runs until December 31. Companies could then begin filing their annual report on January 1.

Vermont Annual Registration Filing Fees & Instructions

The filing fee associated with a Vermont annual report varies greatly depending on the classification of the business. For example, the state requires domestic for-profit corporations to pay a $45 filing fee with their annual report. Foreign profit corporations, on the other hand, must pay a $200 fee for their report. Vermont only requires nonprofit corporations -- both foreign and domestic -- to pay $20 to file a business report, and nonprofits only need to file every two years.

When a limited liability company files an annual report with the Vermont Secretary of State, they only pay a $35 filing fee. However, foreign limited liability companies must pay a $100 filing fee.
