How Our District of Columbia Biennial Report Service Works

For $100 plus the state-mandated report fee, we’ll file your biennial report. For most domestic businesses, that’s $400 total.

Biennial Report Service Benefits

At Northwest Registered Agent, we’re committed to protecting our clients’ privacy. District of Columbia Biennial Reports are public record, so we’ve designed our biennial report service to protect your privacy. Here’s how:

  1. We will list OUR contact information instead of yours on the report form.
  2. Only the minimum required information will be included.
  3. We will list our IP address – limiting the connection between your cell phone, personal computer, and work computers – this makes it harder for advertisers to follow you.
  4. We will list our bank and credit card information – not yours.

We believe everyone has the right to keep their information private. That’s why privacy is our guiding principle when we create every service and product.

District of Columbia Biennial Report FAQ

Are there initial reports in District of Columbia?

Yes, all new domestic and foreign corporations, nonprofits, LLCs, LPs, and LLPs in District of Columbia must file a DC Initial Report by April 1 the year after formation. The filing fee for corporations, LLCs, LPs, and LLPs is $300 and $80 for nonprofits.

Most businesses file their District of Columbia Initial Reports right after formation, so these reports are not included in our District of Columbia Biennial Report service. However, if Northwest formed your company or is your District of Columbia registered agent, we will remind you of your initial report due date as well as your biennial report filing date.

When are DC Biennial Reports Due?

When you form a new business in Washington D.C, you must submit your initial report by April 1 the following year. After that, DC annual reports are filed on April 1 every other year.

Are there late fees or penalties if I don’t file my District of Columbia Biennial Report?

There is a $100 late fee for corporations, LLCs, LPs, and LLPs who fail to file their reports on time. Nonprofits will be charged a $50 late fee.

Who can file a District of Columbia Biennial Report?

A District of Columbia Biennial Report can be signed by any authorized person, who is permitted to act on the business’ behalf. This could be someone within the business (such as a director or manager), or someone outside of the business that is hired to file a report. When you hire Northwest Registered Agent for biennial report service, we complete and file your District of Columbia Biennial Report.
