Submitted by UCS on January 2, 2023
Pennsylvania has updated their annual reporting requirement from every ten years to annually. The requirement for Decennial Reports has been repealed Effective January 3, 2024 all entities will be required to file an Annual Report. Companies will have one year to prepare for the new requirements.
First Reports will not be due until at least 2024. Due dates will be staggered for both domestic and foreign entities with Business & Nonprofit Corporations not before July 1 (i.e., on or before June 30), LLCs not before October 1 (i.e., on or before September 30) and LPs and LLPs not on or before December 31.
Administrative Dissolution and Foreign Administrative Revocation will be authorized for failure to file within 60 days after the due date. This provision is effective for Annual Reports due on or after January 3, 2027. Domestic Reinstatement will be authorized as well.
Note that legislation did not repeal the requirement to file Corporate Tax Reports. Accordingly, Corporate Tax Reports will continue to be due on or before May 15, or on or before the 30th day after the federal due date for corporations operating on a fiscal year other than the calendar year.
We expect additional information regarding the changes to be provided by the Department of State in the coming months.
