Statements of Information for LLCs in California can now be filed online

The California Secretary of State’s office announced this week that statements of information for California limited liability companies (LLCs) can now be filed online.

Secretary of State Alex Padilla said the goal with implementing this online service for LLCs is to streamline the process so that “entrepreneurs can focus less on red tape and more on growing their business.” Corporations already had the ability to file statements of information online, but previously the statements of information for LLCs had to be mailed into the Secretary of State’s office.

As a reminder, statements of information are due 90 days after initial formation and every 2 years thereafter. They also require interim statements of information if any information needs to be updated.

The new online form can be accessed here: https://llcbizfile.sos.ca.gov/.
