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.”
