Irvine, CA Statement of Information

The purpose of a Statement of Information is to provide the California Secretary of State with up-to-date contact information for your Irvine business as well as key figures within the company (e.g., the name and address of the CEO). 

It’s similar to an annual report. However, while annual reports typically require extensive financial information about a business, a Statement of Information is mostly about keeping the state up to date on participants within the organization.

What’s in a 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, or other key figures. 

The information required on a Secretary of State (California) 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 Is My Statement of Information Due?

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.

What Happens If I Don’t File an Irvine Statement of Information?

Not filing your Statement of Information on time could have serious consequences for your business. 

California charges a penalty of $250 for late filing. And until you file, your business will not be in good standing with the state. This can impact your ability to get a loan, complete business transactions, and expand your operations. 

If too much time passes, the state can even dissolve your business. This would effectively shut down your California operations. 

Don’t rely on notices from the state about when to file. Make sure someone within your company tracks which filings are due and when.
