Changes to California Business Entity Filings (Updated May 15, 2013)

As of January 1, 2013, new legal requirements apply to business entity documents filed with the California Secretary of State’s office.

Entity Addresses

All formation/registration documents must include the business entity street address and mailing address.

All foreign corporation and foreign limited liability company registration documents must include the street address of the principal business office address in California, if one exists.

Agent Address

All documents listing an individual person as an agent for service of process must include the agent’s California street address. A post office box address is not acceptable. All documents listing a corporation as a California registered corporate agent must not list an address. The corporate agent’s address is already on file.

Certificate to Register as a Corporate Agent

All corporate agents filing a certificate pursuant to California Corporations Code section 1505 must include the California street address where process may be served. A post office box address for a California registered corporate agent will not be accepted on any document.

Future File Date Requests

All future file date requests for corporation and limited liability company documents must be included within the document submitted or as an attachment to be made part of the filed document.

Copy Requests

The Secretary of State will no longer endorse and certify customer-provided copies. However, a customer who submits documents with a filing fee of $25.00 or more will receive one (1) uncertified copy of the documents for free and, at the time of filing, the free copy may be certified for a $5.00 certification fee. Customers requesting additional copies will be charged $1.00 for the first page and $0.50 for each additional page. Each certified copy requires an additional $5.00 certification fee.

Note: While domestic stock and foreign corporations are required to pay a total of $25.00 when filing the required Statement of Information, the total fees include a $20.00 filing fee and a $5.00 disclosure fee. Therefore, customers requesting copies of a Statement of Information (corporation or limited liability company) must include the copy fees described above.

Cancellation Filing Requirements

To cancel the Articles of Organization of a domestic limited liability company (LLC), the domestic LLC must file a Certificate of Dissolution (Form LLC-3) and Certificate of Cancellation (Form LLC-4/7). However, if all the members vote to dissolve, only Form LLC-4/7 is required.

To cancel the Application for Registration of a foreign (out of state or country) LLC, the foreign LLC must file a Certificate of Cancellation (Form LLC-4/7).

Note: In lieu of the above-mentioned certificates, a domestic LLC can file a Short Form Certificate of Cancellation (Form LLC-4/8) if the following requirements are met:

1)Form LLC-4/8 is being filed within twelve (12) months from the date the Articles of Organization were filed with the Secretary of State;

2)The domestic LLC has no debts or other liabilities (other than tax liability);

3)The known assets have been distributed to the persons entitled thereto or no known assets have been acquired;

4)The final tax return or a final annual tax return has been or will be filed with the Franchise Tax Board;

5)The domestic LLC has not conducted any business from the time of the filing of the Articles of Organization;

6)A majority of the managers or members, or if there are no managers or members, the person or a majority of the persons who signed the Articles of Organization, voted to dissolve the domestic LLC; and

7)If the domestic LLC received payments for interests from investors, those payments have been returned to those investors.

Upon the filing of the Certificate of Cancellation (Form LLC-4/7) or Short Form Certificate of Cancellation (Form LLC-4/8) by the Secretary of State, the Articles of Organization or Application for Registration of the LLC will be cancelled and the powers, rights and privileges of the LLC will cease in California.

Box 944228, Sacramento, CA 94244-2280 or delivered in person to the Sacramento office, 1500 11th Street, 3rd Floor, Sacramento, CA 95814.
