Media release: Secretary of State Brian Kemp reminds officers and registered agents to file annual business registrations with the Corporations Division by Sunday, April 1st. Kemp encourages individuals to file registrations using the user-friendly eCorp platform. Georgia is currently on target to shatter the all-time record for registrations filed during renewal season.
“Georgia’s streamlined filing system has made annual registration for all businesses faster and easier than ever before,” said Secretary Kemp. “We continue to leverage private sector technology to best serve our state’s businesses and job creators. Our goal is straightforward: get government out of your way so you can focus on growing your business, not navigating bureaucratic red tape.”
To date, the Secretary of State’s office has received over 564,650 annual registrations during this year’s filing season—and over 553,280 have done so online for quicker processing. At the current pace, the Secretary of State’s office is set to surpass 2017’s record number of annual registrations filed.
Individuals can visit the eCorp website without having to log into the system and select one of two options: One Click Annual Registration if there are no changes to be made to their business filings or Express Annual Registration to update contact information and make other changes. In addition to filing annual registrations, registered agents and officers can log in to https://ecorp.sos.ga.gov/Account to view or download their business’s receipts, notices, and other correspondence in one convenient location. Customers should provide at least one valid email address with their filing to protect against business identity theft and receive future renewal notices along with important notifications.
Mailed registrations must be postmarked by April 1st to avoid a $25 late fee.
