The Corporate Affairs Commission Establishment Act impose a reporting obligation on all domestic and foreign business entities. They also penalize companies that don’t comply, which is why it is so important to be familiar with this compliance requirement.

Statutory business entities – which include business corporations, nonprofit corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs), limited partnerships (LPs) and limited liability partnerships (LLPs) - are generally required to file an information report with the business entity filing office of their formation state and of every foreign state  in which they are qualified to do business.
