Madison, WI (PRWEB) February 6, 2006
BizFilings, the leader in online incorporation services, is making it easier than ever for customers with North Carolina corporations and LLCs to meet the state’s annual reporting requirements. BizFilings now offers online annual report filing services to customers with North Carolina corporations and Limited Liability Companies (LLCs).
The State of North Carolina requires for-profit corporations to submit an Annual Report each year by March 15. LLCs must file their Annual Report by April 15.
While filing annual statements can seem like a simple task on the surface, the process is often complicated because companies can be doing business in several states simultaneously, all with different reporting processes. Mark Schiff, General Manager for BizFilings, said that BizFilings is an online leader in helping corporations file their annual statements. The company currently files annual statements electronically in Delaware, Florida and California. He said the company anticipates putting more than 20 additional states online in 2006.
"The requirements are different in every state," said Schiff. "There is no set time when states require their annual statements. Some states require everyone to file at once; others require corporations to file on their anniversaries. Some have different dates and requirements depending on whether it’s an LLC or corporation. That is why it’s a good idea for companies to have someone to turn to for this task."
Corporations are often required to foreign-qualify in additional states when they start transacting business in states other than where they’re incorporated. And, like annual report requirements, the definition of "transacting business" depends on the state and the situation.
Troy Janisch, marketing director for BizFilings, said corporations are seeking service partners that can meet their need for ongoing compliance in addition to their need for incorporation services.
"Our customers demand innovative compliance tools—and that’s exactly what we provide," said Janisch. "They want to concentrate on their core business instead of monitoring the paperwork requirements in each of the states in which they do business."
BizFilings also offers customers a Web-based compliance management tool called BizComply, which outlines critical events and notifies business owners before these events need to happen. It provides access to important forms and houses a company's critical information in one convenient location. Owners of multiple businesses can keep track of each business entity through a single account. And, if a business is qualified in multiple states, BizComply helps manage the compliance requirements for each of those states.
