Initial Report requirement for Alaska LLCs

Every LLC in Alaska is required to file an Initial Report within 6 months of approval.

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

The cost is $0 and it can be filed online.

Your Initial Report can only be filed after your LLC has been approved.

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:

    Thank You! Your site has been extremely helpful in answering even some of the most minor questions I’ve had. I found your site more helpful than the FAQ’s section on my state’s corporations, business and commerce page.

      Hi Corbin, you’re very welcome, and thank you! While the state does have some good resources, it can often hard to navigate. As for LLC University®, we understand that knowledge is power, so we do our best to make sure the information we put out can be easily understood by everyone :)

      Hi Mary, you can use any address you’d like for the Officials part. The address doesn’t have to be in Alaska, but it can be in Alaska. Yes, you can use your US virtual address for this section. Hope that helps!
