What is a biennial report Nebraska? It's a form you need to file to keep your LLC in legally good standing with the state.

A biennial report includes any updates to your company's information, such as:

  • Mailing address.
  • Business address.
  • Names of members.
  • Addresses of members.

You're required to submit a biennial report to the Nebraska Secretary of State once you've officially registered your LLC in the state. Your first biennial report will be due between January 1 and April 1 in the year after your LLC is formed.

After this initial report, as the name suggests, the biennial report must be filed every two years.

Nebraska Biennial Report Costs for Different Businesses

Not all Nebraska businesses follow the same guidelines for the biennial report. In fact, the type of business you run will control how much you pay and when you need to turn in your information.

Profit Corporations

  • Cost is $52.
  • Form is due between January 1 and March 1 of even numbered years.

Nonprofit Corporations

  • Cost is $10.
  • Form is due between January 1 and April 1 of odd numbered years.

Foreign Corporations

  • Cost is $52.
  • Form is due between January 1 and March 1 of even numbered years.

Domestic/Foreign LLCs

  • Cost is $10.
  • Form is due between January 1 and April 1 of odd numbered years.

Charities

  • There is no cost or due date because charities do not have to file a biennial report.

Regardless of which type of company you manage, you'll be pleased to know that you can file your report either online or through the mail, whichever is most convenient.

What Happens If You're Late Filing Your Biennial Report?

If things come up and you aren't able to file your biennial report on time, you will have a chance to file it late during a grace period. For example, businesses with the April 1 filing deadline have a chance to submit their biennial report until June 1.

If you fail to take advantage of this grace period and still don't file, your business will enter a delinquent status, after which Nebraska may revoke your right to do business in the state.

Keep in mind that once the ultimate June 1 deadline hits, you won't have a chance to file your report at all. The downloadable form will be removed from the website, and the online filing system will be shut down until the next filing period.

How to File Your Nebraska Biennial Report Online

Filing your Nebraska biennial report online is the easiest and quickest method. Your form will be approved immediately, and you'll get a confirmation email just a few minutes after submitting it. To file your report online, follow these steps:

  1. Head to the "First Look" page on the Secretary of State website and click the "File Online LLC and LLP" button.
  2. Enter your LLC's account number in the box. If you don't know it, you can search for it using the business search entity website.
  3. You'll see a checkbox asking you to "click here" if any of your company's information has changed. This is referring to your company's designated office address, LLC name, and the addresses of your registered agent. You have to file another form to officially change these items, but this checkbox just lets the state know that the current information on file is incorrect.
  4. Next, you'll see your principal office address. This is your company's official address. If you formed your LLC out of state, it will be the same as your designated office address. However, if you're creating a foreign LLC, it will be your out-of-state address. You can make changes to this address or leave it as is if correct.
  5. The form will then ask for filer information. This includes your name, title, and authorization.
  6. Finally, you'll be asked to review all the information one last time to ensure it's correct. You can click the "edit" button to make changes.
  7. If everything is good, you'll then need to enter your billing information. This will include your name, billing address, email address, and card details.
  8. To process the payment and submit the form, click the "Verify Information" button at the bottom of the page.

Once the form is submitted, you can download your own copy of the biennial report by searching for your LLC on the business entity page, locating the "Filed Documents" section, and clicking on the biennial report. It will cost $0.45 for the download.
