Washington Annual Renewal Filing

We’re Just Not Annoying®


All businesses in Washington are required to submit an Annual Renewal to the Secretary of State each year. Annual Renewals 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 Renewals can be filed online or by mail.

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

How to file your Washington annual report:

WA Corporations and LLCs:

The Secretary of State will send your annual report form to your Washington registered agent. One option is to fill it out and mail it in. Corporations and LLCs in Washington can also use the UBI and password from the form to file online. See the link below. It is an easy system and only takes a few minutes.

WA Nonprofits:

Nonprofit corporations get a postcard from the Secretary of State. They can download the annual report form and mail it in or complete the renewal online. You need your UBI number to renew online. You can find it on the reminder postcard or by doing a name search on the SOS website.


LP annual report forms can be downloaded on the Washington SOS website. Complete the form, print it, and mail it in with the fee.


LLPs are a little different because they have to file an annual notice with the SOS. WA provides one form for multiple LLP filings. You just use the LLP notice form to update your information annually.

WA Charities:

Charities file the renewal form found on the Secretary of State’s website under the ‘Charities Home’ tab.



We will prepare and file your Annual Renewal 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.
