Renew an LLC

You must file an annual registration for your LLC with the Secretary of State every year.

If you own an LLC, every year it is in business you must file an annual registration with the Secretary of State's Georgia Corporations Division. The annual deadline is April 1, unless you already filed for the current year via a multi-year registration. If you do not file an annual registration for your business or you fail to pay your fees, you might be subject to a civil suit or your LLC might be administratively dissolved or revoked by the SOS.
