ALASKA DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE BIENNIAL REPORT INSTRUCTIONS
Every Alaska business must file a biennial report once every two years with the Alaska Division of Corporations, Business & Professional Licensing. Domestic corporations and LLCs pay a $100 filing fee. Foreign LLCs and corporations pay a $200 filing fee. Regardless of whether the company is foreign or domestic, however, the Alaska Biennial report for LLCs and corporations is due January 2, every other year. What year a company files their report is determined by the year that the company was originally formed or registered to do business in Alaska. If the year company registered in an even numbered year, they will always file the Alaska Biennial Report in even numbered years (vice versa, for companies formed/registered in odd numbered years).
Alaska nonprofits must also file Biennial Reports, however, they must file by July 2. The Biennial Report filing fee for Alaska nonprofits is $25, with a possible late fee of $5.
You can complete the filing online on the Alaska Division of Corporations, Business & Licensing’s website. Or, if you don’t want to deal with the hassle you can hire us to complete the Biennial Report on your company’s behalf.
