Biennial and Annual Reports


After your formation, you must file an initial SI within 90 days. After this, LLCs file SI’s every two years in the anniversary month of formation (if your LLC was formed in June, you file your SI in June). Failure to submit your company’s SI will result in penalties and the possible dissolution of your limited liability company.

LLCs are pass-through entities, and members must pay taxes on all profits on their own individual tax returns. The state income tax rate ranges between 1.25% and 10.55%.

There is also a yearly Franchise Tax of $800.


Corporations submit the SI every year and pay the total $25 fee. There is also an annual Franchise Tax of $800.

The corporate tax rate in California is 8.84%.

Corporate Filing Services can help you file your annual compliance for a fee.
