To: All parish business managers

Many parishes are now receiving notices from the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office indicating that the “2020 annual registration season is here.” It contains instructions about getting the annual registration document completed before April 1.
Please know that the Office of Finance and the chancery will file all parish incorporation documents on behalf of the parishes by the filing date, as we did in 2019, and we will pay the small annual registration fee.
At the beginning of each year, there are a number of marketing organizations offering to assist corporations, for a fee, to do this annual registration. We do not recommend paying such outside organizations for doing the filings, as the work is minimal, and we are more than willing to do it on every parish’s behalf.
