Colorado Annual Report Filing Instructions

What is the cost to file the Colorado periodic report?

  • Colorado Corporations, PCs, LLCs, PLLCs, LLPs, LPs, Nonprofits, domestic and foreign, cost $10.
  • Charity Annual Renewal: Colorado Secretary of State generally charges $10, but occasionally will offer for a limited time a registration and renewal fee of $1.

How to file your Colorado Secretary of State annual report:

Colorado Corporations, PCs, LLCs, PLLCs, LLPs, LPs, and nonprofits have to file periodic reports with the Secretary of State, Business Division. Like everything else in Colorado, the reports have to be filed online and paid with a debit or credit card.

It is easy to file your Colorado annual report online. From the Colorado Secretary of State’s homepage, click on “Business Renewal/File a Periodic Report.” Then you can search for your business by name or ID number. Once you find your business you click on “Confirm” to access the periodic report and update any information.

Colorado charities have a separate registration and renewal requirement with the Secretary of State, Charities Division. Charities have to create an account, then log in and file the renewal online. See the Charities link below.

When is the Colorado Periodic Report Due?

The report filing period for all Colorado corporations, LLCs, nonprofits, LLPs, and LPs begins on the first day of the anniversary month and ends on the last day of the month, 3 months later. So, basically if your filing anniversary is January 15th, your reporting period is from January 1st to March 31st.

Charities have to file an annual report with the Secretary of State by the 15th day of the 5th month after their fiscal year end. Most charities have a fiscal year end date of December 31st, so typically the report is due on May 15th.

Late fees?

If you don’t file the periodic report on time, you have to pay a $40 late filing penalty.

How do I get notified?

Colorado Secretary of State sends out reminder emails. You have to sign up for this email reminder service on the Colorado Secretary of State’s website. If you don’t you will not get report reminders from them. When you sign up with ‘Northwest,’ we keep track of your annual report date and send you reminders so you know when your report is due.
