What You Should Know: If you’re starting a new business, you might
want to reserve your name for 30 days while filing your paperwork.
Name reservations cost $25, and original filing fees cost $100. Not
sure which business type meets your needs? Learn the differences
between an LLC, Sole Proprietorship, and Corporation in the
gov blog. Regular annual registration is due April 1 and costs $50.
There is a $25 late fee. Although you can submit a hard copy of
your renewal, electronic filing is both faster and more convenient
than paper filing. Renew at the Secretary of State’s Corporations
Division website. To renew your registration online, you'll need to
have available your control number, a valid email address, and all
mailing addresses for corporate officers.
