You have to file your Florida Annual Report online, but it is pretty easy to do. And they actually have some helpful information and filing instructions on their website (see link below). You need your Florida “document number” to get started but if you don’t have it you can easily search for it on the website as well.
Florida charities have separate registration and renewal requirements with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
When is the Florida Annual Report Due?
Corporations, profit, nonprofit and professional, LLCs, LLPs, LLLPs and LPs have to file annual reports with the Florida Department of State by May 1st each year.
Charities have to renew their registration with the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services each year by the exact anniversary date of initial registration. The department will mail a reminder 60 days before the renewal due date.
Are there Initial Report Requirements in Florida?
No, but regardless of how late in the year you file, you will owe a report by the following May 1st.
There is a $400 late filing penalty for all profit corporations, LLCs, LLPs, LLLPs, and LPs that don’t file annual reports by May 1st. Nonprofits don’t pay a penalty, but still face the same administrative dissolution or revocation process as profit companies.
