April 1st is the deadline for biennial reports to be filed in the District of Columbia. All entity types are required to file a report; a $100 late fee is assessed for failing to do so timely. An entity’s first biennial report shall be delivered for filing by April 1 of the year following the calendar year in which the domestic filing entity was formed or the foreign filing entity registered to do business in the District. Reports are due biennially (every two years) after that. Additionally, any trade name due to expire this year, must be renewed by April 1st to avoid cancellation.
There is no need to worry about providing original copies; the DC Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) will accept copies for filing.
As always, if you have any questions about biennial reports or need assistance with filing, we are more than happy to help. Simply e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 202.386.7575 or 877.531.1131.
