As the holiday season approaches, remember that you can submit year-end filings (in most states) in advance, ensuring that you get the correct formation or cancellation date in spite of heavy filing volumes. In some states, Delaware in particular, filings not submitted by the December 31 deadline could incur an additional year of taxes. Please contact your Parasec account executive for state-specific details.

Effective January 1, 2017, California Assembly Bill 1722 (AB 1722) makes changes to California’s Revised Uniform Limited Liability Company Act. Now, instead of requiring a California LLC to have a majority vote in order to dissolve its business, the LLC will only need a vote of 50 percent or more. The bill is designed to help small, two-member LLCs avoid the unnecessary and costly litigation that is currently required in order to dissolve. Read the bill in its entirety here.

The states listed below have annual reports due in the coming months. Don’t miss a deadline or you may be subject to hefty penalties and reinstatement fees. For assistance maintaining your annual report compliance, inquire about our managed annual report services. Email us at for more information.

Staff members who normally work from 4:00 p.m. to midnight will instead work from noon until 8pm. This schedule change will mean that all 30-minute and Priority 1 (one-hour service) must be received by 6:00 p.m., and Priority 2 (two-hour service) must be received by 5:00 p.m. No other cut-off times will be impacted by the event.

California law requires that any company doing business for profit within the state under a fictitious name register that name with the county clerk of the county of the registrant’s principal place of business. If you’ve already filed your fictitious business name (FBN), great! If not, we can help. Either way, it’s very important that you not let your FBN filing expire. FBN filings lapse and failure to renew prior to the expiration date could result in the loss of your business name−costing you time, money, and your company’s reputation and brand identity.
