Maintenance of a Corp or LLC
Annual Maintenance Requirements for Corporations, LLC, Limited or General Partnership
If you operate a Corporation you are required to file an Annual Franchise Tax Report and pay the state fees on or before March 1st each year. The Annual Franchise Tax Report requires a principle business address, that address can NOT be your registered agents address. A company's principal place of business is the primary location where its business is performed. This is generally where the business's books and records are kept and is often where the head of the firm and other senior management personnel are located. You can opt to use our Delaware Virtual Office address for fee.
