“Decennial Report of Association Continued Existence,” must be returned by businesses in order to maintain exclusive use of their name. Forms will be mailed to selected businesses including domestic and foreign corporations (profit and nonprofit), LLC’s, LLP’s, LP’s, and business trusts. The completed form, along with a $70 fee, must be returned to retain and protect the recipient’s registered name.
Pennsylvania businesses formed prior to 2002 should also note that failure to receive a Decennial Filing notice does not exempt them from filing. An online database of businesses required to file in 2011 is available at http://www.corporationdecennial.state.pa.us/.
