605.0212 Annual report for department.
(1) A limited liability company or a registered foreign limited liability company shall deliver to the department for filing an annual report that states the following:
(a) The name of the limited liability company or, if a foreign limited liability company, the name under which the foreign limited liability company is registered to transact business in this state.
(b) The street address of its principal office and its mailing address.
(c) The date of its organization and, if a foreign limited liability company, the jurisdiction of its formation and the date on which it became qualified to transact business in this state.
(d) The company’s federal employer identification number or, if none, whether one has been applied for.
(e) The name, title or capacity, and address of at least one person who has the authority to manage the company.
(f) Any additional information that is necessary or appropriate to enable the department to carry out this chapter.
(2) Information in the annual report must be current as of the date the report is delivered to the department for filing.
(3) The first annual report must be delivered to the department between January 1 and May 1 of the year following the calendar year in which the limited liability company’s articles of organization became effective or the foreign limited liability company obtained a certificate of authority to transact business in this state. Subsequent annual reports must be delivered to the department between January 1 and May 1 of each calendar year thereafter. If one or more forms of annual report are submitted for a calendar year, the department shall file each of them and make the information contained in them part of the official record. The first form of annual report filed in a calendar year shall be considered the annual report for that calendar year, and each report filed after that one in the same calendar year shall be treated as an amended report for that calendar year.
(4) If an annual report does not contain the information required in this section, the department shall promptly notify the reporting limited liability company or registered foreign limited liability company. If the report is corrected to contain the information required in subsection (1) and delivered to the department within 30 days after the effective date of the notice, it is timely delivered.
(5) If an annual report contains the name or address of a registered agent which differs from the information shown in the records of the department immediately before the annual report becomes effective, the differing information in the annual report is considered a statement of change under s. 605.0114.
(6) A limited liability company or foreign limited liability company that fails to file an annual report that complies with the requirements of this section may not maintain or defend any action in a court of this state until the report is filed and all fees and penalties due under this chapter are paid, and shall be subject to dissolution or cancellation of its certificate of authority to transact business as provided in this chapter.
(7) The department shall prescribe the forms, which may be in an electronic format, on which to make the annual report called for in this section and may substitute the uniform business report pursuant to s. 606.06 as a means of satisfying the requirement of this chapter.
(8) As a condition of a merger under s. 605.1021, each party to a merger which exists under the laws of this state, and each party to the merger which exists under the laws of another jurisdiction and has a certificate of authority to transact business or conduct its affairs in this state, must be active and current in filing its annual reports in the records of the department through December 31 of the calendar year in which the articles of merger are submitted to the department for filing.
(9) As a condition of a conversion of an entity to a limited liability company under s. 605.1041, the entity, if it exists under the laws of this state, or if it exists under the laws of another jurisdiction and has a certificate of authority to transact business or conduct its affairs in this state, must be active and current in filing its annual reports in the records of the department through December 31 of the calendar year in which the articles of conversion are submitted to the department for filing.
(10) As a condition of a conversion of a limited liability company to another type of entity under s. 605.1041, the limited liability company converting to the other type of entity must be active and current in filing its annual reports in the records of the department through December 31 of the calendar year in which the articles of conversion are submitted to the department for filing.
(11) As a condition of an interest exchange between a limited liability company and another entity under s. 605.1031, the limited liability company and each other entity that is a party to the interest exchange which exists under the laws of this state, and each party to the interest exchange which exists under the laws of another jurisdiction and has a certificate of authority to transact business or conduct its affairs in this state, must be active and current in filing its annual reports in the records of the department through December 31 of the calendar year in which the articles of interest exchange are submitted to the department for filing.
