How to File

Alaska reports are filed every other year. The year you file is determined by when you originally registered your business in Alaska. If you registered your company in an even-numbered year, you always file the biennial report in an even-numbered year. If you registered your company in an odd-numbered year, reports are due every odd-numbered year.

Filing Your Alaska Biennial Report

You can file your Alaska Biennial Report online or by mail. Either way, you’ll need to visit Alaska’s Division of Corporation, Business & Licensing website to generate a form specific to your business.

  1. On the state website, go to the Alaska Corporations Database page.
  2. Enter your business name in the “Entity Name” box, and click “Search.”
  3. Select your business from the search results by clicking the entity number next to your business name.
  4. Click the link to file the Biennial Report for your company.
  5. Select either “file online” or “print form” if you want to print the hard copy and mail it in. The site will generate the Alaska Biennial Report form for your business.

When filling out the biennial report, you’ll include the following information and update it if necessary:

  • Name and address of the company.
  • Name and address of your registered agent in Alaska. (You have to file a separate “Change of Agent Form” and pay an additional $25 fee if you are changing your Alaska registered agent.)
  • Names and addresses of members/managers or directors/officers.

If filing online, you can pay the fee with a credit card. If mailing your form, include a check or money order.

Rather not deal with the hassle of filing yourself? Or worried you’ll forget to file? Avoid incurring late fees and penalties when you hire Northwest Registered Agent to file your Alaska Biennial Report for you.

How Our Alaska Biennial Report Service Works

For $100 plus the state-mandated report fee, we’ll file your Alaska Biennial Report. For most domestic businesses, that’s $200 total.

  • You can sign up for this service by itself or add it on to an existing service. Compliance service is also automatically added when you hire us to provide your registered agent service or form your Alaska LLC, Alaska corporation or Alaska nonprofit.

  • Once you’re signed up for compliance service, you’ll pay nothing up front. We’ll send you a reminder 90 days before your filing due date and auto-charge your preferred method five days later.


Biennial Report Service Benefits

At Northwest Registered Agent, we’re committed to protecting our clients’ privacy. Alaska Biennial Reports are public record, so we’ve designed our biennial report service to protect your privacy. Here’s how:

  1. In order to preserve your privacy, we will list OUR contact information instead of yours on the report form.
  2. Only the minimum required information will be included.
  3. We will list our IP address – limiting the connection between your cell phone, personal computer, and work computers – this makes it harder for advertisers to follow you.
  4. We will list our bank and credit card information – not yours.

We believe everyone has the right to keep their information private. That’s why privacy is our guiding principle when we create every service and product.

Alaska Biennial Report FAQ

Are there initial reports in Alaska?

Yes, all new domestic corporations, professional corporations, domestic nonprofit corporations and domestic LLCs in Alaska must file an Alaska Initial Report within six months of their formation date. There is no fee for the Alaska Initial Report, and it can be done easily online.

When you hire Northwest Registered Agent to form your Alaska business, we will file your initial Alaska report for you!

Are there late fees or penalties if I don’t file my Alaska Biennial Report?

If you don’t file your Alaska Biennial Report on time, you’ll have a one month grace period before the following late fees apply:

  • Domestic corporations, LLCs and LLPs: $37.50
  • Foreign corporations, LLCs and LLPs: $47.50
  • Nonprofit corporations: $5

In addition, failing to file your initial or biennial report will put your business into “non-compliant” status. If non-compliance is not remedied, the state will eventually dissolve domestic businesses or revoke out-of-state businesses. Dissolved businesses can apply to reinstate their business within two years of dissolution. After two years, it will be necessary to form a new Alaska business. Revoked businesses will need to file for a new Certificate of Authority.

How long does Alaska Biennial Report processing take?

Online filings are processed immediately. Mailed filings take significantly longer. Since nearly all biennial reports are due in January, the department’s busiest time of year, mailed filings often take more than 15 days to process.

Who can file an Alaska Biennial Report?

After starting a business in Alaska, any authorized person may sign the Alaska Biennial Report. An authorized person is someone the Alaska business permits to act on its behalf. This could be someone within the business (such as a director or manager), or someone outside of the business that you hire to file your report. When you hire Northwest Registered Agent for biennial report service, we complete and file your Alaska Biennial Report.

Do Alaska Biennial Reports need original signatures?

No, Alaska doesn’t require original signatures on biennial reports. While some states require original, inked signatures on state forms, Alaska permits both online biennial report filings with electronic signatures and photocopies of original paper documents.

Do Alaska charities need to renew every year?

Yes! Alaska charities renew each year by completing the annual registration and renewal form and mailing it in to the Alaska Department of Law, Consumer Protection Unit with a check for the fee. Annual renewal is the same price as initial charity registration: $40.
