California Secretary of State Statement of Information Instructions
What is the cost to file the California Statement of Information?
How to file your Statement of Information with the California Secretary State:
California Corporations: You can file online or mail it in. It is strongly recommended that corporations take advantage of the online filing option since California is slow at processing documents and their delinquent penalty is hefty. Domestic profit corporations file Form SI-200. Domestic nonprofits use Form SI-100 and all foreign corporations (stock, professional, flexible purpose and nonprofits) in California file Form SI-350.
California LLCs: Limited Liability Companies must mail their Biennial Statement of Information to the California Secretary of State. There is just one form for both domestic and foreign LLCs, whether filing the initial statement or the biennial statement. (Form LLC-12)
Be sure to read the attached instructions carefully. If your information hasn’t changed since your last statement of information filing, you can now check the box in number 3 of the corporate statements, and number 4 of the LLC biennial statement. Just sign and date and you are done. The California Secretary of State requires the following information updated for all corporations and LLCs in the state.
California Charities: Renew each year by completing the annual registration and renewal form and mailing it in to the attorney general. (Form RRF-1) The California charities link is found below.
CA General Partnerships, Limited Partnerships and Limited Liability Partnerships: Neither domestic nor foreign partnerships have any reporting requirements in California.
Are there Initial Report requirements in California?
Yes. All corporations and LLCs operating in California must file the Initial Statement of Information within 90 days of registering with the Secretary of State.
