A Florida annual report must be filed each year for a business entity to maintain an “active status” with the Florida Department of State. The annual report is not a financial statement, the report is used to update or confirm the Department of State, Division of Corporations’ records.
In Florida, the report is due by May 1st of each year. A $400 late fee is imposed on all profit corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnerships and limited liability limited partnerships which fail to file their annual reports on or before May 1st. Not for profit corporations are not subject to the $400 late fee.
