Corporate Compliance Services

Velawcity’s senior corporate paralegals help you stay on top of various requirements and deadlines for statutory reports, business renewals and other compliance requirements. State requirements vary between the types of entity. For instance, corporations may need to file an annual report in a particular state, but LLCs, LPs, LLPs may not. Some states require annual reports, while other states require biennial reports, while some states do not require statutory filings at all. Then, there’s Pennsylvania which requires a decennial report – unless the company has made a filing in the past 10 years. In addition, some states, such as California require initial statements of information (the equivalent of an annual report) to be filed within 30 days of registration in order to avoid tax penalties. Velawcity tracks all deadlines, notifies you of an upcoming deadline within 30 days of the due date. After confirming updated information, Velawcity senior corporate paralegals always prepare and file required reports in a timely manner. Velawcity corporate compliance services include:

Velawcity Paralegal Services Include:

Like most controllers, undetected compliance issues keep me up at night. So, we hired Velawcity to audit compliance issues. Velawcity found 3 states with issues which were handled efficiently and cost-effectively. In the process Empirix saved $1,800 in Illinois penalties because Velawcity found an Illinois tax amnesty period and ensured the filing was made within the allotted time. Velawcity called to our attention a $65,000 credit in Delaware. Through Velawcity’s efforts, Empirix had that money in the bank within 2 months. To top it off, Velawcity negotiated a volume discount with our registered agent that reduced our annual registered agent invoice by more than 50%. Thanks to Velawcity, Empirix will be saving thousands of dollars annually for years to come. The folks at Velawcity went above and beyond the typical outsourced vendor. I’d recommend Velawcity to any company.
