Corporations: Beware “Corporate Records Service” Mailing!
Some of our clients are reporting that they have received a “2013 – Annual Records Solicitation Form” from Corporate Records Service. This official-looking form provides spaces to report shareholders, directors and officers, and instructs you to include a check for $125.
It’s all very convenient – but it is also likely unnecessary for your business.
According to this post on the Oregon Secretary of State’s website, this is not an official State of Oregon requirement, and it does not satisfy the annual Oregon reporting requirement for corporations. (Information about what is required by Oregon can also be found on the Secretary of State website.)
We therefore recommend that if you receive this notice, promptly file yours in the “shred me” box!
