Rhode Island Annual Report Filing Instructions

We’re Just Not Annoying®


Almost all businesses in Rhode Island are required to submit an Annual Report to the Division of Business Services 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 Rhode Island Annual Report:

For RI nonprofits, corps, PCs, LLCs, L3Cs (Low-Profit LLC) and PLLCs, there are two options for filing your Rhode Island Annual Report. They are:

  1. File online. Simply click on “File Corporate Annual Reports” under the Online Filings column at the Rhode Island business website. See the link below. You have to log in with a customer number and PIN. Contact Rhode Island at corp_pin@sos.ri.gov, and you will receive you login numbers in minutes. Just enter your information and submit the form.
  2. Mail it in. You can fill out the form received from your registered agent in Rhode Island or download one from the RI website. See the link below. Submit the completed report with the filing fee. You may not change your registered agent information on an annual report. Rhode Island needs you to file a Statement of Change form.

RI LPs and LLPs in Rhode Island do not file annual reports.

RI Charity Renewal: RI Charities file an annual Charitable Organization Applicationform with the Rhode Island Department of Business Regulations, Securities Division, by mail with the filing fee. Find the form at the link below. The major catch is that the PDF form needs to be transferred to a CD before you send the renewal to the division.



We will prepare and file your Annual Report for only $100 plus state fees. You never have to worry about missing compliance deadlines, getting hit with penalties and late fees, or losing your good standing. Simply hit Order Now and we will take care of the rest.
