Beating Year End Deadlines
Incredibly, 2022 is coming to a close! This was a busy year for Velawcity! Our business and our team grew by leaps and bounds. After plodding through the COVID years, our clients’ practices have been making up for lost time. Now, before we know it, here we are, closing out another year!
Dissolutions and Withdrawals
Timing is everything when it comes to dissolutions and withdrawals. In Delaware, if an entity exists on January 1st, another year of franchise taxes are assessed.
In most states you can opt for an effective date for the filing to be within 30 days of the filing. So, for instance, you could file a dissolution on December 1, making it effective December 31. It’s a good idea to strategize regarding the process and timing of dissolving and withdrawing.
Some states require a tax clearance in order to dissolve. In these cases, it’s never too early to get started by making sure all tax returns have been filed.
Most companies will need to file the current year’s annual report before filing a certificate of dissolution. In some cases, such as MA limited liability companies, an annual report is not required so long as the company is dissolved prior to its anniversary date. This saves the filer $520! Therefore, it’s financially beneficial to determine requirements ahead of time.
