  • Your Guide to Year-End Corporate Compliance
Posted on by Kacy Flowers


At the end of each year, it's important to take a look at the portfolio of business entities you manage and make sure that you've satisfied all of your corporate filing and reporting obligations and resolved any outstanding compliance issues. CLAS has prepared this guide that makes it easier for businesses to organize and track important end-of-year compliance activities, maintain good standing, and start the new year off right.

The goals are to:

  • Check for inactive entities to avoid unnecessary compliance obligations
  • Clear unnecessary tax obligations off the books
  • Avoid delays at the year-end closing table
  • Secure important name reservations and renewals
  • Make sure all business licenses and permits reflect all changes to the business, both completed and planned
  • Confirm good standing status so planned deals are ready to move forward in the new year
