Connecticut law requires annual report filings for the following business entities: Stock Corporations; Nonstock Corporations; Limited Liability Companies; Limited Partnerships; and Limited Liability Partnerships. The purpose of the annual report is to ensure the accuracy of the information on record regarding your business entity. The annual report does not require any financial information.
The statutory filing fees for annual reports are as follows:
|LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY||$20*||$20*|
|LIMITED LIABILITY PARTNERSHIP||$20*||$20*|
*fee increases to $80 effective July 1, 2020
Online filing of annual reports is mandatory unless you request a waiver. Failure to file annual reports subjects the business entity to administrative dissolution and will prevent you from obtaining a Certificate of Legal Existence (Good Standing) for the business. Our office will administratively dissolve entities that fail to file annual reports. Recent administrative dissolution activity by the office is listed here.
To request an online filing waiver, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (860) 509-6003 and provide: (1) the business name; (2) the business ID; and (3) the address where the waiver can be mailed.
New in 2020
The following changes regarding annual reports go into effect in 2020:
Effective January 1, 2020, the Business Entity Tax (BET) is eliminated. Please see the Department of Revenue Service website for more information on the BET sunset.
Effective January 1, 2020, all businesses must now update their registered agent on their annual report. During the online filing process, you will be required to confirm and update your registered agent information. For more information on registered agents, please see our FAQ page.
Also, all businesses must report their North American Industry Classification System code (NAICS code) for their business. The online filing process will help you find the NAICS code most applicable for your business. We have developed a NAICS code lookup tool to assist customers with this new requirement.
Effective July 1, 2020, the filing fee for annual reports will increase from $20 to $80 for LLCs, LPs, and LLPs. To take advantage of the $20 filing fee, file all past due annual reports prior to July 1, 2020. Because of the elimination of the BET, the filing fee increase still results in a net savings for businesses of $65/annually.
