Filing Your Kentucky Annual Report

You can file your Kentucky Annual Report online, by mail, or by returning the annual report postcard the state will send your registered agent between January and February each year.

To File Online OR To Print An Annual Report Form:

  • Go to the Kentucky Online Services page.
  • Enter your business’s name and click “continue.”
  • Select your business from the search results.
  • Confirm and/or update your principal business address and registered agent information. If you need to make changes to either, you’ll need to file a Statement of Change of Principal Office and/or Statement of Change of Registered Office/Agent. There is a $10 filing fee for each form.
  • Then, click the “File Annual Report” button at the top of the page.

Here’s everything you’ll need to include, verify, and/or update on your Kentucky Annual Report:

  • Principal business address.
  • Registered agent name and address.
  • Officers/directors or members/managers names and addresses.
  • Signature, title, and email of person filing the annual report.

When you reach the final review page, you’ll be able to choose between printing your annual report OR submitting the report online. If you choose to mail your annual report, you must include a check or money order. Online submissions must be paid using a credit card.

How Our Kentucky Annual Report Service Works

For $100 plus the state-mandated report fee, we’ll file your annual report. That’s $115 total.

Annual Report Service Benefits

At Northwest Registered Agent, we’re committed to protecting our clients’ privacy. Kentucky Annual Reports are public record, so we’ve designed our annual 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.

  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.
