Corporate Renewal Fee



Georgia mapEach business entity registered or filed with the Office of the Secretary of State of Georgia is required to file an annual registration and to pay the appropriate renewal fee.


On the Secretary of State’s current website, the deadline for the annual registration renewal period on one page is listed as 11:59 p.m. on Friday, May 31, 2014, and on another the deadline is listed as April 1st of each year.  Just to be sure that you file in time, I would suggest the earlier date, April 1, 2014.   Any late filings will be charged a $25.00 late filing penalty fee as well as run the risk of administrative dissolution or revocation of the authorization to transact business in this State.  Any fees paid for filing a registration are non-refundable, regardless of your reason for seeking a refund.  Before proceeding, please confirm whether your entity’s annual registration is due for the current year only or for previous years as well.


When you file your annual registration, you will be providing a current record of your entity’s management structure, your correct mailing address, and the name and address of your Georgia registered agent.


The fee schedule is:


For-profit corporation, limited liability company (LLC),

limited partnership (LP)                                                                 $50.00

Non-profit corporation                                                                        $30.00

Foreign limited liability partnership (LLP)                            $25.00


Anyone who is unsure of the status of their entity may visit the Corporations Division website  (https://sos.ga.gov/ and search for their company by name or by control number.  If the status is “Active/Noncompliant” or “Active/Owes Current Year AR”, the entity likely owes annual renewal fees.
