New York Biennial Statement Filing
No matter what type of business you operate, foreign or domestic, LLC or corporation, you will need to file a Biennial Statement every other year after forming a company in New York. Biennial Statements are just a way for New York’s Division of Corporations to keep their records updated. Most states have you file something like it every year, but New York’s every other year system can make it easier to forget…
That’s why at New York Registered Agent LLC we remind you when your New York Biennial Statement is approaching. If you use any of our services, and opt-in for Biennial Statement Compliance, you don’t have to worry as much, why? Because we’ll file it for you. As long as you’re a client, we’ll file your New York Biennial Statement every other year on your behalf, ensuring that you always stay compliant.
How To File A NY Biennial Statement Yourself
The first thing that you should discern is exactly when your New York Biennial Statement is due.
Your New York Biennial Statement is due on the last business day of your business entity’s anniversary month. For example, let’s say you have a New York LLC or New York corporation (foreign or domestic) that was formed in November of 2018. Your New York Biennial Statement would be due on November 30th of 2020, the last business day of the month 2 years later.
Once that date arrives, the easiest way to complete your New York Biennial Statement is to do so online. To file online you will use New York’s E-Statement Filing System. You can also print the forms and mail or deliver them to the New York Division of Corporations at:
New York State Department of State
Division of Corporations
State Records and Uniform Commercial Code
One Commerce Plaza
99 Washington Avenue
Albany, NY 12231
How To File Your NY Biennial Statement Online
To file online you will need your New York Business’s DOS ID Number. If you don’t have that information right at hand, don’t worry. You can search for your business in New York’s Corporation & Business Entity Database. Just type in your business name and it will tell you your DOS ID Number. You can then start your filing with the E-Statement Filing System. Login and answer if any of the following information has changed, and if so, list the change:
The name of your business entity
The Chief Executive Officer’s name and address
The address of your business’s principal executive office
The address to which the New York Secretary of State shall forward copies of process accepted on behalf of the corporation (i.e. your New York registered agent)
Your signature and date
After that, you will submit the electronic form and then be prompted to pay the $9 filing fee. Shortly thereafter, you should receive a confirmation email and guess what? Your New York Biennial Statement is complete.
