Your first Statement of Information is due within 90 days of registering your business. After that, you must file a Statement of Information either annually or biennially (every 2 years). This depends on the type of business entity you have, as follows:
- Corporations – Annually
- Registered Foreign Corporations – Annually
- Agricultural Cooperatives – Annually
- Nonprofits – Biennially (every 2 years)
- LLCs – Biennially (every 2 years)
Regardless of whether you file annually or biennially, the due date is your anniversary (the date your business was approved).
For example, if your Irvine LLC was approved on August 10, 2022, your first Statement was due on November 10, 2022. Since LLCs are required to file every 2 years, your next Statement of Information would be due by August 31, 2024.
California gives you a six-month filing window starting 6 months before your filing is due. So, you could file anytime between March 1, 2024, and August 31, 2024.
