Colorado Periodic Report Filing Instructions

We’re Just Not Annoying®


The Colorado Secretary of State requires that every company registered to do business in Colorado file a Periodic Report. That means every corporation, LLC, partnership and nonprofit, both foreigns and domestics, must submit an annual report each year. Arizona companies must pay a $10 filing fee when they file the annual report. The Colorado Periodic Report is due every year within a 90-day window, starting on the first day of the month in which your originally registered your company and the last day of the month 3 months later. For example, if you formed your company on February 15th, your annual report would be due every year after between February 1 and April 30.

Colorado Periodic Report Fee Schedule

Late Fees: If you don’t file your Colorado Annual Report on time, you must pay a $40 late fee.


Colorado Corporations, PCs, LLCs, PLLCs, LLPs, LPs, and nonprofits have to file periodic reports with the Secretary of State, Business Division. Like everything else in Colorado, the reports have to be filed online and paid with a debit or credit card.

  2. Hire Us
    For $110, we’ll file your annual report, you don’t have to worry about it, and you can stop reading this page now.


What is the cost to file the Colorado periodic report?

  • Colorado Corporations, PCs, LLCs, PLLCs, LLPs, LPs, Nonprofits, domestic and foreign, cost $10.
  • Charity Annual Renewal: Colorado Secretary of State generally charges $10, but occasionally will offer for a limited time a registration and renewal fee of $1.

Colorado charities have a separate registration and renewal requirement with the Secretary of State, Charities Division. Charities have to create an account, then log in and file the renewal online. See the Charities link below.

When is the Colorado Periodic Report Due?

The report filing period for all Colorado nonprofits, LLPs, and LPs begins on the first day of the anniversary month and ends on the last day of the month, 3 months later. So, basically if your filing anniversary is January 15th, your reporting period is from January 1st to March 31st.

Charities have to file an annual report with the Secretary of State by the 15th day of the 5th month after their fiscal year end. Most charities have a fiscal year end date of December 31st, so typically the report is due on May 15th.

Late fees?

If you don’t file the periodic report on time, you have to pay a $40 late filing penalty.

How do I get notified?

Colorado Secretary of State sends out reminder emails. You have to sign up for this email reminder service on the Colorado Secretary of State’s website. If you don’t you will not get report reminders from them. When you sign up with ‘Northwest,’ we keep track of your annual report date and send you reminders so you know when your report is due.

Once your company is formed, your registered agent in Colorado will receive annual report notifications.
