How do I get notified?
Wisconsin DFI will send the annual report form to the WI registered agent of each corporation, nonprofit and LLC. You need a reliable Wisconsin registered agent, and at ‘Northwest’ we scan and upload the annual report forms immediately at our local office so you can print them or follow instructions to file online.
WI Charities are mailed a renewal form to their principle address six weeks before due date.
After you start a business in Wisconsin, your registered agent in Wisconsin will receive and forward your annual report notices to you in a timely manner.
Who can file Wisconsin annual reports?
