Michigan Annual Report Filing Instructions

We’re Just Not Annoying®


All businesses in Michigan are required to submit an Annual Report to the Corporation Division each year. Annual Reports are updates to the corporate information listed with the state, such as the names and addresses of members/officers, business and mailing addresses, and registered agent information. Annual reports can be filed online or by mail.

If you hire Northwest Registered Agent, we will professionally prepare and submit your Annual Report well in advance of your compliance deadline. We guarantee that your Annual Report will be filed properly and on-time. Our service ensures that you remain compliant with this important state requirement.

How to File Your Michigan Annual Report:

Michigan Corporations and Limited Liability Companies: There are a few options for filing your Michigan Annual Report.

  • Profit corporations, domestic nonprofits and LLCs need to go to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs website, or click on the FILEOnline link at the bottom of this page. Find your filing ID number by searching your corporate name. Just complete and submit the online form. You can update any information that needs changed.
  • Foreign non profits cannot file online but they can file the report by mail, in person, as an email attachment or by fax.
  • Your registered agent should furnish you with a pre-printed annual report form three months before the due date. You can make any necessary changes, sign it and deliver it by fax, mail, or in person with the filing fee.
  • You can also scan the completed form and attach it to an email to the Corporation Division. Print out the completed form from FILEOnline, or use the form received from your registered agent. You must first have a MICH-ELF filer account for the fax or email filing option. Go to the MI Corporation site to set up your account by fax filing the application, which will be in your online account if ‘Northwest’ is your Michigan registered agent. Remember to use the cover sheet with faxes and emails.

Michigan Limited Partnership and LLPs: No annual report requirements in Michigan.

Michigan Charity Renewal: Charities file an annual Solicitation Renewal form with the Michigan Attorney General. It can be filed by mail or filed electronically. We furnish a link below to the AG website.
