You did it. Your Missouri LLC is officially up and running, ready to take on challenges, roll in the profits, and change the world.
There’s no doubt that this is an exciting time in your business journey. After starting your LLC, it’s easy to get carried away in all the excitement and expectations. After all, as a new business owner, you’ve got a lot on your plate.
Most states have ongoing maintenance requirements for LLCs called annual reports, which allow the state to keep tabs on your company’s organizational structure and some other important details. However, Missouri is one of a small handful of states that does not require any sort of regular reporting from LLCs.
Not only does this take some responsibilities off of your entrepreneurial plate, but it also cuts back on your expenses. While business owners in nearly all other states have to make room in their budgets for an annual (or biannual) payment to the state, Missouri entrepreneurs have nothing to worry about in this regard.
However, there are still some situations in which you should inform the state of changes to your business. For instance, if you change your Missouri registered agent, you will need to file a Statement of Change of Registered Agent and/or Registered Office By a Foreign or Domestic For-Profit or Nonprofit Corporation or a Limited Liability Company form with the state. And if you amend your LLC’s business purpose or ownership group, you must submit an Amendment of Articles of Organization document. But outside of these types of circumstances, you do not need to keep up any sort of regular reporting requirement with the state of Missouri.
So, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy operating your compliant Missouri LLC without worrying about annual reports!
