The year-end is approaching and companies should start to think about annual meetings. The Massachusetts corporate law is similar to many other state laws requiring corporations to hold an annual meeting for the purpose of electing board members and other corporate governance. For many smaller corporations, this is a typically an easy process, but that does not mean you should ignore it. However, recently I received some forms in the mail from "Massachusetts Corporate Compliance" that would help me complete this process - for a fee. You do have to file a notice annually with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, but these forms are not it. The Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth even posted a notice about this solicitation.
When you are filing your annual reports in Massachusetts, you can do so with a simple online filing at the Secretary of the Commonwealth's Web site. Happy New Year!
