Every California limited liability company (LLC) and foreign LLCs registered in California must file a statement of information with the Secretary of State within 90 days of filing its original articles of organization or application for registration, and biennially thereafter. The statement of information is sometimes referred to as the biennial statement.

A limited liability company may file its statement of information in the calendar month when it originally filed its articles of organization or application for registration and the immediately preceding five calendar months. The statement of information is required of every limited liability company whether or not the LLC is actively conducting business when the statement is due. The fee for filing the statement is $25.00. If an LLC is filing a statement to amend any information on a previously filed statement and is filing outside the applicable filing period discussed above, no fee is required. Limited liability companies that fail to file a biennial statement may be assessed a penalty in the amount of $250.00.
