Starting January 1, 2012 e-mail notification will be the only method of receiving notices of Periodic Report due dates for an entity, renewal due dates for a trade name or trademark registration, or other changes to a record. You are strongly encouraged to sign up for e-mail notification if you would like to receive these notices. In order to sign up for email notifications go to http://www.sos.state.co.us/ and conduct a business search for your company name. After you find your company click on the link near the bottom that states “Subscribe to E-mail Notification Regarding this Record” and follow the instructions. If you do not have a computer or e-mail address, then we recommend maintaining a calendar in order to remember the report requirement.
If you have signed up for the Colorado Business Division’s e-mail notification service, an e-mail notice that a Periodic Report is due will be sent at the beginning of the three-month period for filing the Periodic Report on time. The notice will indicate the last day for filing the Periodic Report on time and will provide instructions for filing the report through the Colorado Secretary of State’s website. The Colorado Secretary of State will continue to mail postcard notices to indicate a Periodic Report is due until January 1, 2012.
If an entity does not file a Periodic Report on time, the entity’s status will be changed from “Good Standing” to “Noncompliant” and another notice will be sent indicating that the entity’s status will be changed to “Delinquent” if the Periodic Report is not filed.
