Valencia Statement of Information

A Statement of Information provides the California Secretary of State with important information about your Valencia or Santa Clarita business. It includes details like your organization’s principal address, plus information about key players at your company, like the CEO and other executives.

Certain types of businesses are required to submit a Statement of Information, either annually or biennially (every two years).

Who Must File a Statement of Information?

To conduct business in Valencia, Santa Clarita, 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 to File a Valencia Statement of Information

You must file your first CA Statement of Information within 90 days of forming your Valencia or Santa Clarita business. After that, the filing schedule depends on the type of business structure you have and when you first registered your business. 

  • 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 state gives you a six-month filing window, which includes the entire month in which you originally registered your business, plus the preceding 5 months. 

For example, if you first registered your LLC in the month of November, your next Statement of Information will be due two years later by the end of November. But you can file anytime between June 1 and November 30 of that year. 

If anything changes between filings, you will need to file an updated Valencia Secretary of State Statement of Information as soon as possible—don’t wait until your next filing is due. 

If nothing has changed between filings, you may be able to file a “Statement of No Change.”  

What’s in a Statement of Information?

While some states ask for detailed financial information in a Statement of Information, California’s requirements are much simpler. 

You’ll need to provide basic information about your Valencia or Santa Clarita business, such as: 

  • The name and address of your principal executive office
  • The names and addresses officers/directors/managers/members
  • The name and address of your Agent for Service of Process

The person who fills out the Statement of Information must sign and date it at the bottom.

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

You could be penalized or even lose your business if you don’t file a Statement of Information. 

The Secretary of State usually sends a reminder around 3 months before your Statement is due. But you shouldn’t rely on this. It is your responsibility to track your filing due dates. Make sure someone at your company keeps track of when your Statement of Information is due and files on time. 

If you are delinquent, the state will notify you and give you an additional 60 days to file. After that, the Secretary of State will notify the Franchise Tax Board, who will assess a penalty fee. 

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. And if too much time passes, the state can even dissolve your business. 

Don’t avoid filing and get help if you need it.
