Secretary of State Jesse White


Only domestic (incorporated in Illinois) can file annual reports on-line. Foreign corporations (incorporated outside of Illinois) cannot file an annual report on line.

The registered agent and/or registered office cannot be changed via an electronically filed annual report. However, corporations which need to change their registered agent and/or registered office can file a Statement of Change of Registered Agent and/or Registered Office separately using a paper form (NFP 105.10/105.20) after being placed in good standing.

A maximum of six officers and seven directors can be entered via the web form. If you need to enter more officers or directors, you must file the annual report on paper.

An electronically transmitted annual report will be considered an original filing even if an earlier annual report submitted on paper was returned unfiled for revisions by the Secretary of State. All penalties incurred as of the current date must therefore be paid along with the filing fee at the time of filing.

Payment must be made using Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express cards only. No other forms of payment are acceptable. Payment is required during the electronic filing process.

As the annual report will be processed within 24 hours (excluding weekends and holidays) of its receipt in this office, an expedited fee of $25 will also be charged at the time of filing.
