Please be aware that (updated 10/21/2014) ANNUAL BUSINESS SERVICES or COMPLIANCE SERVICES or CORPORATE RECORDS SERVICE (not to be confused with the Washington corporation, Compliance Services, Inc) are mailing notices to business entities requesting that “Annual Minutes” and a fee of $125.00 be sent to them for filing.

These notices are NOT from the Washington Secretary of State, Corporations and Charities Division. “Annual Minutes” are NOT required to be filed with the Secretary of State. They are to be kept by the business entity itself. Do NOT confuse these notices with the annual report notices sent by the Washington Secretary of State, or the Business Licensing Services at Department of Revenue reminding each business to file its 2014 annual report.

If you have questions about these notices please contact the Corporations and Charities Division at corps@sos.wa.gov or call 360-725-0377.
