Company Annual Reports Due May 1

Dear Friends and Clients;

Now that tax season is over, don’t forget to file your annual report before May 1, 2015 with the Department of State, Division of Corporations. If you fail to do so, a non-waivable late fee of $400 will be imposed for your Company to maintain its active status.

You can go to https://services.sunbiz.org/Filings/AnnualReport/FilingStart to file your report.

Please remember that this is the time to update your information.  You should (i) add, delete, or change the names and/or addresses of the officers, directors, managers, managing members, and addresses only of general partners; (ii) change the registered agent and registered office address; (iii) change the principal office address and mailing address for the business entity; and/or (iv) add or change your federal employer identification number.

Please feel free to call and/or email Cobbe Law directly with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,
Melody Cobbe

When Should You Use the “TM” or “®” symbols?

If you claim rights to use a mark, you may use the “TM” (trademark) or “SM” (service mark) symbol to alert the public to your claim of a “common-law” mark.  No registration is necessary to use a “TM” or “SM” symbol and those symbols put people on notice that you claim rights in the mark.  You may only use the federal registration symbol “®” after the USPTO actually registers a mark.
