What's in the Statement of Information?
A Statement of Information lists, and officially verifies, a certain number of vital facts about a business that is registered with the Secretary of State. It is not a financial statement. Information contained in these documents include:
- The official registered name of the business
- The 7- or 12-digit Secretary of State File Number
- Street address (and mailing address, if different) of the business
- Name and address of the Chief Executive Officer
- Name and address of the other officers/members/managers
- Name and address of the California Agent
- Name and address of the director (for Stock and Agricultural Cooperative Corporations)
- A brief description of the type of business or it services
At the bottom is the signature of the person who filled out the statement.
In California, there are actually two different types of Statement of Information forms. Form SI-550 is intended for corporations and Form LLC-12 is for limited liability companies (LLCs). It’s important to fill out the correct form that applies to your San Diego business.
