To avoid substantial late fees, Warner issues important notice to WV businesses to file Annual Report before June 30 deadline


Charleston, W.Va – WV Secretary of State Mac Warner is issuing an important notice to business owners reminding them to file their Annual Report by the statutory deadline of June 30th. Businesses that miss the June 30th deadline will be flagged in the state's database as out of compliance. Late filers will be assessed a $50 late fee as required by state law.

Almost 99% of all Annual Reports are filed online. Online filings can take less than five minutes at the WV One Stop Business Portal found at Guest filing is available for business owners who prefer not to establish an online account.

The fee to file an Annual Report is $25. Warner encourages business owners to be wary of third-party solicitations that charge as much as $375 to file the Annual Report on behalf of the business. A third party is not required to file.
