  • Complete the Filing Yourself
    Kentucky sends a postcard to your registered agent every year. You can simply check a box on the postcard, verifying that the information is correct and send it back to the state with your filing fee, or visit the Kentucky Secretary of State’s website and file online. If you file your Kentucky annual report online, go to the state’s Online Services. Perform a business search for your company in the state database. Once you find your company, select it from the results. Confirm or update the following information where appropriate:

    • Company Name
    • Principal Business Address
    • Name and address of your registered agent in Kentucky.
    • Names and addresses of officers/directors/members/managers/trustees.
    • Signature of authorized person
  • Hire Us
    If you don’t want to deal with the annual report, for $115 total, we’ll file your annual report, you don’t have to worry about it.
