Compliance Words in the AirYou’ve worked very hard to get your business started, and continue working to keep it running smoothly and profitably. Entrepreneurs work hard all the time, and in our current economy, we’re all working even harder to meet our business goals.

Given how busy you are with everything that’s involved in maintaining a successful business, from finding and keeping clients to managing employees to marketing the company, it’s understandable that you simply can’t find the time for every single task that will best benefit your company.

There are certain aspects of your business that require your specific know-how. You are the boss, after all, and while you may be able to delegate or outsource many tasks, there are still things that only you can do.

But you don’t have to do everything yourself. In fact, in some cases you shouldn’t. That’s where CorpNet can help.

Once you’ve taken the step of incorporating your business, whether you’ve formed an LLC or corporation, you have to take certain steps to keep your company in compliance with various regulations. Rather than trying to figure out the requirements on your own, or paying costly attorney fees to have it done for you, let CorpNet help you to keep your company in good standing.

Some states require a corporation or LLC to file an Initial Report, which provides detailed information about the company’s board of directors, officers and registered agents, among other things. Filing requirements vary by state; many states don’t require this information. Let CorpNet take the confusion out of this filing for you.

All but two states require a corporation or LLC to file an Annual Report, which is similar in scope to the Initial Report. Failure to file by state deadlines can lead to fines and fees, and may also put your company in jeopardy of suspension or dissolution. Having accomplished so much, it would be heartbreaking to lose your company due to something as easily avoided as a missed deadline. Let CorpNet handle this important filing on your behalf, and take the worry out of getting the paperwork done in time.

It’s not uncommon for incorporated businesses to undergo changes down the road. In most cases, your Secretary of State must be notified of any changes to the business, such as those affecting the name, address, board of directors, registered agent or business activity. Our Articles of Amendment summary offers the information you need about this filing.

If you decide to change your business structure – for example, switch from an LLC to a corporation – you will most likely have to file a Conversion. This filing varies from state to state, and can become rather complex. Let CorpNet handle the intricacies and free your time to devote to running your business.

These are just a few examples of business filings that will keep your company in good standing. Don’t try to go it alone. CorpNet’s professional, experienced staff is ready to help you figure out what you need, and get it done, efficiently and affordable.
