Annual Reports for Business Entities are Due June 1, 2009

Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap reminds all business and nonprofit entities on file with the Secretary of State’s office as of December 31, 2008, that 2009 Annual Reports are due by June 1, 2009.

You can file quickly and easily using Maine's online filing system. To file online, go to https://www10.informe.org/aro/index_on.html. Payment can be made by Visa, Mastercard, Discover, electronic check or subscriber account. The annual report fee is $85 for domestic business entities, $150 for foreign business entities and $35 for domestic or foreign nonprofit corporations. If you filed online in a previous year, the information you provided at that time will be available online for you to review, update and file. For account subscribers, there is additional functionality to assist with managing multiple annual report filings.

Another service available online allows a noncommercial clerk or a noncommercial registered agent to change their address or the home office address on file. Additionally, this service allows an authorized individual of a foreign entity (organized outside Maine) to change the principal or home office address. To make these address changes separately from the online annual report filing service, please visit: https://www10.informe.org/icrs/change/.

For entities that prefer to file a paper annual report, a preprinted form can be downloaded at: http://www10.informe.org/aro/form_download.html.

A late-filing penalty will be assessed on all reports received after June 1, 2009, the legal filing deadline. A final reminder to entities that have not yet filed was sent on May 18th using the email address on file for the entity.

Please call (207) 624-7752 or send an email to cec.corporations@maine.gov if you have questions about filing an Annual Report filing or changing an address.
