Warner reminds West Virginia business owners to file Annual Report by June 30

Charleston — 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 30. Businesses that miss the 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 Business4.wv.gov. 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.

For assistance, call the WV Secretary of State’s Office during regular business hours at 304-558-8000 to speak to a WVSOS Business specialist, or use SOLO, the new virtual assistant, accessible from the bottom right corner of sos.wv.gov.

Additionally, the WV One Stop Business Center in Charleston, as well as remote business hubs in Clarksburg and Martinsburg, are available for walk-in customers. You can find the addresses of the three offices at the bottom of the WVSOS homepage at sos.wv.gov.
