More than 25,000 businesses have not filed their annual report, which was due to Mississippi on April 15.

State law requires all limited liability companies and corporations to file an annual report online with Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann’s office. The reports require information about the state of incorporation, email and business address, registered agent, managers and members.

More than 164,700 LLCs and corporations operate in Mississippi. Businesses failing to file will be administratively dissolved in early November, according to Hosemann’s office.

“An Annual Report can be filed in Mississippi at little or no cost and with the click of a mouse,” Hosemann said. “We never want government to be a barrier to business growth, so the goal has always been to make it as easy as possible for businesses to fulfill their statutory requirements and for the public to be able to search records filed.”

There is no cost to file an annual report for domestic LLCs. Corporate annual reports are $25 and foreign LLCs pay $250.
