This page provides answers to the following Connecticut LLC questions:

What exactly is an annual report?

How do I submit my yearly report?

Should I use a registered agent?

What Exactly Is an Annual Report?

An annual report is a routine file that your LLC must make every year in Connecticut to update your company information, which includes:

NAICS code and subdivision

Postal address

Address of the main office

LLC officials’ names and residences (i.e., members, managers, directors, or officers)

Name and address of the registered agent

The goal of this report is to maintain your Connecticut company records up to date. This enables creditors and other interested parties to locate your company address in the event that they need to contact you. This information is used by the government to trace the payment of your LLC state taxes.

How Do I Submit My Annual Report?

Connecticut LLC annual reports may be filed online at the State of Connecticut website. To finish the filing, you must first establish a user account on the CT Business One Stop site.

Should I Hire a Registered Agent?

A registered agent is a person or corporation designated by your firm to receive and deliver documents on your behalf. You may guarantee that your LLC’s reports are always submitted on time to the relevant government agency by employing a registered agent service. The following are the three primary benefits of employing a registered agent service for your LLC:

Avoid late filing penalties: If a Connecticut LLC fails to submit an annual report, the Secretary of State has the authority to dissolve it. A registered agent service will remind you when reports are due and, for an extra cost, will submit the file for you.

Gain flexibility: A registered agent service may receive and submit paperwork for your LLC during normal business hours, allowing you to avoid working from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every week. You may also employ a registered agent service to create an LLC in states where you do not already have a company presence.

Keep your personal address out of public records: Using a registered agent service helps you to keep your personal address out of public records, preserving your privacy. Furthermore, if your LLC is sued, the lawsuit will be served at the registered agent’s address rather than your place of business.
