PENNSYLVANIA DECENNIAL REPORT

All businesses in Pennsylvania are required to submit either a Decennial Report or an Annual Report to the Department of State each year. Decennial 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. Decennial reports can be filed online or by mail.

If you hire Northwest Registered Agent, we will professionally prepare and submit your Decennial or Annual Report well in advance of your compliance deadline. We guarantee that your Decennial or 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 Pennsylvania Department of State Decennial Report:

Annual and decennial report forms are available on the Pennsylvania Department of State website. They require pretty basic information and are easy to fill out.

PA Corporations, LLCs and LPs:

Corporations, LPs and LLCs in Pennsylvania are required to file a report every ten years. But the report is only required if you have not made other filings (amendments, change of agent, etc.) during the ten year period. The PA Department of State, Corporation Bureau will send you the form you need to complete and send back.

PA Nonprofits:

Nonprofit corporations in Pennsylvania file decennial reports if they have not made any new filings with the Department of State during the 10 year period. PA domestic nonprofits are required to file an Annual Report form by April 30th if there has been a change to the corporate information during the previous calendar year. So if one of these annual reports was filed by the nonprofit, the decennial report is not required. If the nonprofit has made a change to its directors or officers, file the Annual Statement – Nonprofit Corporation.

LLPS and PLLCs:

Any domestic or foreign registered limited liability partnership or professional limited liability company in existence on December 31st of any year is required to file a Certificate of Annual Registration by the following April 15th. The form is simple but the fee is high. Mail it in with the filing fee to the Department of State, Bureau of Corporations.

PA Charities:

Pennsylvania charities are required to register and annually renew the registration with the Pennsylvania Department of State, Bureau of Charitable Organizations. This form is basically a financial statement that must be mailed into the Bureau with an attached IRS form 990 and the filing fee. The fee is based on gross contributions. Download the Registration Packet for all instructions. See the link below.
