What's in the Statement of Information?
A California Statement of Information simply lists certain basic pieces of data pertaining to a specific business; it should not be confused with a financial statement. Data listed on a Statement of Information includes:
- The exact registered name of the business
- The Secretary of State File Number of the business (7 or 12 digits)
- Street address of the business (and mailing address, if different)
- Name and address of Chief Executive Officer
- Name and address of other officers (corporations) or managers/members (LLCs)
- Name and address of the California Agent for Service of Process
- Name and address of the director (Stock and Agricultural Cooperative Corporations only)
- A brief description of the type of business or services
The person who fills out the form must sign it to affirm that all information it contains is correct.
There are two distinct Statement of Information forms: Form SI-550 is for corporations; Form LLC-12 is for limited liability companies. Be sure that you use the form that applies to your business.
