How Our Georgia Annual Report Service Works

For $100 plus the state-mandated report fee, we’ll file your annual report. For most domestic businesses, that’s $150 total.

  • You can sign up for this service by itself or add it on to an existing service. Or, sign up when you hired us to provide your registered agent service or form your Georgia LLC, Georgia corporation or Georgia nonprofit.

  • If you sign up for compliance service, you pay nothing up front. We’ll send you a reminder 90 days before your filing due date and auto-charge your preferred payment method 60 days before your report is due.

Annual Report Service Benefits

At Northwest Registered Agent, we’re committed to protecting our clients’ privacy. Georgia 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 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.

Georgia Annual Report FAQ

Are there initial reports in Georgia?

Yes, all new domestic corporations and nonprofits must file an initial report 90 days after formation. However, if you form your business after October 1, you will only submit one annual report between January 1 and April 1. There is a $50 filing fee for corporations, and a $30 filing fee for nonprofits. All other business entities in Georgia do not have any initial report requirements.

Many corporations and nonprofits file their Georgia Initial Reports right after formation, so these reports are not included in our Georgia Annual Report service. However, if Northwest formed your company or is your Georgia registered agent, we will remind you of your initial report due date as well as your annual report filing date.

Are there late fees or penalties if I don’t file my Georgia Annual Report?

If you don’t file your Georgia Annual Report on time, you’ll be charged a $25 late fee. In addition, failing to file your initial or annual report within 60 days after it is due will result in your business being administratively dissolved. Businesses that have been dissolved can apply for reinstatement within five years of dissolution. After five years, it will be necessary to form a new Georgia business.

How long does Georgia Annual Report processing take?

Online filings are generally processed within 5-7 business days. Paper filings submitted by mail are typically processed within 15 business days. However, since all annual reports are due between January 1 and April 1, the department’s busiest time of year, turnaround times for all filings will sometimes take longer.

GA LLP (domestic): $50 online, $60 paper
