Fresno, CA Statement of Information

When you first start a Fresno business there are lots of decisions to make. If you form a corporation, you need to choose executive staff and establish a board of directors. If your business is an LLC, you need to decide on managers and members. 

You are required to report this information to the state. But you may not have it all nailed down in the early days of forming your business.

That’s what a Statement of Information is for. It keeps the California Secretary of State updated with information about participants in your organization after you start your business and periodically thereafter.

What's in the Statement of Information?

A Statement of Information expands on the information you provided in your Articles of Incorporation. And it keeps the Secretary of State updated with changes that happen from year to year, based on decisions made by your executive team, board of directors, and other key figures in your company. 

The information required on a Statement of Information form varies slightly based on whether your business is an LLC or a corporation. In general, you’ll need to provide: 

  • The name of your LLC or corporation
  • The Secretary of State entity number
  • Physical address of the principal executive office
  • Mailing address, if different from principal office
  • The names and addresses of officers and directors (corporations)
  • The names and addresses of managers and members, if applicable (LLCs)
  • The name and address of the LLC’s Chief Executive Officer, if appointed
  • General statement of the business and services of the company
  • Name and address of the Agent for Service of Process 

The person who fills out the Statement of Information must sign and date it at the bottom.

When to File a Fresno Statement of Information

You are required to file your first CA Statement of Information within 90 days of forming your Fresno business. After that, the filing schedule depends on the type of business structure you have and when you first registered your business.

  • Corporations – Annually
  • Registered Foreign Corporations – Annually
  • Agricultural Cooperatives – Annually
  • Nonprofits – Biennially (every 2 years)
  • LLCs – Biennially (every 2 years)

The California Secretary of State gives you a six-month filing window, which includes the entire month in which you originally registered your business plus the preceding 5 months. 

For example, let’s say you first registered your LLC on November 15, 2022. Since LLCs are required to file every 2 years, your next Statement of Information will be due by November 2024, and you can file anytime between June 1 and November 30, 2024.

What Happens If I Don’t File a Fresno Statement of Information?

Not filing your Statement of Information on time could have serious consequences, including fines and even the eventual dissolution of your business. 

If your address changes after you form your business, you may not receive reminder notices about the due date for your Statement of Information and other important filings. Don’t rely on these notices. Make sure someone within your company tracks which filings are due and when.
