LLC Annual ReportBeginning in 2025, every Pennsylvania LLC will need to file an Annual Report each year to renew their LLC.

Note: Pennsylvania used to require that LLCs file a report every 10 years (called a Decennial Report). However, starting in 2025, the new Annual Report requirement will replace the old Decennial Report.

Whether you already have an LLC, or you just started one, you won’t have to file this until 2025 (just bookmark this page for later).

What is an Annual Report for an LLC?

The Pennsylvania LLC Annual Report is a filing that keeps your LLC’s contact information up to date with the Pennsylvania Department of State.

It can be filed online or by mail and it keeps your LLC in compliance and in good standing.

Does Pennsylvania require an Annual Report?

Yes. Starting in 2025, every Pennsylvania LLC (Limited Liability Company) must file an Annual Report every year. It is a state requirement in order to keep your LLC in good standing.

This is required regardless of business activity or income. Meaning, even if your LLC does nothing and makes no money, you still have to file this paperwork every year.

Having said that, it’s okay if your Annual Report is late in Pennsylvania. The penalty is not that serious.

How much does it cost to file an Annual Report in Pennsylvania?

The Pennsylvania Annual Report costs $7 per year.

This filing fee is paid every year for the life of your LLC.

Pennsylvania LLC Annual Report due date

All Pennsylvania Limited Liability Company (LLC) reports are due by September 30th every year.

When is my first Annual Report due?

If your LLC was formed between 1994 and 2024, your first Annual Report is due by September 30th, 2025.

If your LLC is formed in 2025, your first Annual Report is due by September 30th, 2026.

Then your Annual Report is due by September 30 every year after that.

Pennsylvania LLC Annual Report Reminders

Reminder postcards will be mailed to your Registered Office (aka Registered Agent) 2 months before the deadline (mailed the first week of August).

But if you don’t receive the reminder postcard, you are still responsible for filing the Annual Report on time.

So we recommend putting a repeating reminder on your phone, computer, and/or calendar just in case.

Here’s a video on how to use Google Calendar to create reminders:
