Businesses which file more than 60 days late may be administratively dissolved or revoked and may acquire additional reinstatement fees.

Please note: If your business is inactive when you place this order and needs reinstatement, we may contact you to pay additional fees required to process your order. We will not be able to proceed with filing your business entity report until reinstatement fees are paid and your business is in an active status. Businesses in the State of Indiana are required to do their business entity report filings every other year, before last day of business anniversary month. Filings done through IBFC will include your business entity report filing and your purchase will include all fees, including annual registration fees, as well as processing fees.
** If you need an updated labor law poster, please make sure it is added to your selection below. Labor Law Posters should also be renewed every calendar year in order to remain compliant by displaying current laws and updated important information.

If you have reached this page in error, are a new business, do not need to renew / file an business entity report, and only need to obtain your Certificate of Existence, Labor Law Poster, and/or EIN, please go back to our homepage and select the documents you would like to obtain and you will be redirected to the proper application forms.

About your Business Entity Report: ​​

  • A Business Entity Report must be filed every other year, before the last day of the anniversary month for your business entity to maintain an “active status” with the Department of State.
  • It updates or confirms your records with the Indiana Department of State, Division of Corporations, displaying your business’s most current data on file.
  • It is required, whether or not you need to make changes.
  • It is not a financial statement.
  • If a business files more than 60 days late, your business entity may be administratively dissolved or revoked and may acquire additional reinstatement fees.
