Reports as low as $49 with our Total Compliance Package

Companies conducting business in West Virginia are required to file an annual report. This report is crucial in allowing the Secretary of State’s office to keep track of the companies who are active in the state. No matter if your business is a limited liability company or a nonprofit corporation, you must submit an annual report by 11:59 PM on June 30. There is a $25 fee associated with doing so.

Companies do not have to file a report when they are first founded, but they are required to file an annual report during the next calendar year. For example, even if a company registers with the state on December 29, the state still requires them to file an annual report by the end of the day the following June 30. Failure to file an annual report could put your company at risk for administrative dissolution.

How to File Your West Virginia Secretary of State Annual Report

The state of West Virginia encourages companies to take advantage of the online filing system, which companies can access here. Although companies are still able to mail their annual reports to the Secretary of State’s office, officials have indicated that they may soon move to an exclusively e-file system.

Companies can file electronically 24 hours a day. When submitting online, your annual report will process immediately. Once your application has cleared, the Secretary of State’s office will send a confirmation to the email associated with your business. It is easy to pay the filing fee by credit card or debit card when filing online. The electronic system is also one of the best ways to avoid late filing fees.

If a company does not wish to file online, they can also mail their annual report to the Secretary of State’s office. Companies can download a blank form and complete it. Remember that when mailing a hard copy, the report must be postmarked by the deadline date to avoid late fees. Also, remember to include a check made out to the Secretary of State with the report.
