All business corporations incorporated in the State of Delaware are required to file an Annual Report and to pay a franchise tax by March 1st of every year. Exempt domestic corporations do not pay a tax but must file an Annual Report. This ensures that your corporation will stay in good standing status with the Secretary of State of Delaware.
Pay your annual franchise taxes and file your annual report for Delaware business corporations electronically through COGENCY GLOBAL's Delaware Annual Report Filing System in Entity Central®. This complimentary system for COGENCY GLOBAL clients helps you retain the good standing status of your Delaware corporations and provides 24/7 access to the official state acknowledgment copies of tax payments and annual franchise tax report filings in Entity Central®.
View the information the Delaware Division of Corporations has on record for your corporations: authorized shares, par value, and franchise tax calculation obtained directly from the Delaware Secretary of State’s computer system.
Save time with intuitive edit and copy features:
- If we have information in our system from a prior Delaware annual report filing, you’ll be able to easily view and edit director, officer, and other information required by the Delaware General Corporation Law to complete the annual franchise tax report.
- If we don’t already have these details in the system, it’s easy to enter the Director and Officer information required to complete the annual franchise tax report. This information will be automatically saved for review and editing any time during the following year.
- You can also copy information for the same slate of directors and officers or principal business address to one or more related subsidiaries.
