Oceanside Statement of Information

A CA Statement of Information keeps the Secretary of State’s office updated with key information about your Oceanside business, including your principal address and the names and addresses of important people within the organization, such as the CEO.

It’s the equivalent of an annual report in other states. But while other states often require detailed financial information in an annual report, California only requires basic information about your business.

In California, Statements of Information are straightforward. You don’t need to include balance sheets, profit-and-loss statements, and other financial documents. Nor do you need to attach fancy graphs or charts. 

The Statement of Information is mostly about keeping the state updated on key players within your organization. 

You’ll need to provide the name and principal address of your business, contact information for directors/officers/managers/members of your organization, and the name and address of your Agent for Service of Process.

Who Is Required to File?

To conduct business in Oceanside or anywhere in California, the following types of business entities must file a CA Secretary of State Statement of Information:  

  • Corporations (foreign and domestic)
  • Limited liability companies (LLCs)
  • Nonprofits
  • Agricultural cooperatives
  • Credit unions
  • General cooperative corporations

When Do I File an Oceanside Statement of Information?

You file annually or biennially (every other year), depending on the type of business entity you have. Here is the schedule, according to business type: 

  • Corporations – Annually
  • Registered Foreign Corporations – Annually
  • General Cooperative Corporations & Agricultural Co-ops – Annually
  • Nonprofits – Biennially (every 2 years)
  • LLCs – Biennially (every 2 years)
  • Credit Unions – Biennially (every 2 years)

The California Secretary of State provides a six-month filing window that includes the month in which your Statement is due plus the preceding five months. 

For example, if you own a corporation and first registered your business in the month of July, your next Oceanside Statement of Information will be due by July 31 of the following year. But you can file anytime between February 1 and July 31 of that year. 

What Information Do I Need to Provide?

California Statements of Information are less complicated than similar reports in many other states. You’ll just need to provide basic information about your business, including: 

  • The name of your Oceanside 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 Oceanside business and services of the company
  • Name and address of the Agent for Service of Process 

Anyone you authorize can submit the report, but they must sign and date the form. It can be an officer or director, a secretary, or someone you hire (such as an attorney) to file on your organization’s behalf.

What Happens If I Don’t File?

Not filing a Statement of Information puts you at risk of being fined or even having your business dissolved. 

The state typically sends a reminder in the mail before an annual report is due. But you shouldn’t rely on this. It’s your responsibility to know when filings are due. Mark your calendar, or make sure the person you authorize to file your Statement of Information stays on schedule. 

If too much time passes and your business is dissolved, it could have serious consequences for the continued financial health of your organization. Don’t delay or avoid filing. Get help if you need it.
