The Delaware Annual Filing is due on March 1st, which is just a month from now. So make sure to be on the lookout for an email from your registered agent in Delaware. You can sometimes use their portal to file an entire annual report.

You will need your file number, which you can find on your articles of incorporation or by conducting a simple search or Delaware’s Division of Corporation website.

The other two main pieces of information you will need to prepare the Delaware Annual Report is your Balance Sheet as of 12/31/2019 and a copy of your Cap Table.  Contact us if you need assistance with this step.

If you are not using your registered agent’s site the filing can be done here.

The calculation of the tax is based on either the Authorized Share Method or the Assumed Par Value Capital Method. See attached calculator to see the calculation using both methods.

As always we are available to help prepare the filing or assist with questions.
