Every LLC in Alaska is required to file a Biennial Report every 2 years.

The purpose of the Biennial Report is to keep your LLC’s contact information up to date with the state.

Method of Filing
Your Biennial Report can be filed by mail, but the state prefers you file it online.

Filing Fee
$100

Due Date
Your Biennial Report is due every 2 years, starting from when you filed your Initial Report.

Your Biennial Report must be filed by January 2nd (every other year).

For example, if you filed your Initial Report on May 15th 2016, your Biennial Report is due by January 2nd 2018, and then due by January 2nd every other year.

Having Trouble?
If you’re having trouble determining when your Biennial Report is due, please contact the state at 907-465-2550.

Penalty
The state gives you a grace period of 1 month. If you still do not file your Biennial Report by February 1st, the state will impose a late fee of $37.50. If you continue to ignore this requirement, the state will eventually shut down your LLC.

Entity Number
Before you begin, you will need to have your LLC’s Entity Number.

You can find your Entity Number by searching for your LLC here:
https://www.commerce.alaska.gov/cbp/main/search/entities

Tip: We recommend putting a repeating reminder on your calendar to make sure you file your Biennial Report every 2 years.
