Reminder: Renew your 2011 Delaware Business Licenses Before December 31st!

Any business operating in the State of Delaware needs to have a State of Delaware business license. In addition, any individual that claims Delaware business income or expenses for the year on either a federal Schedule C or Schedule E form needs to have a State of Delaware business license. This includes both full and part-time workers, as well as those acting as consultants and freelancers.

Currently, any business whose Delaware business license expires this December may opt to renew their 2011 business license online. Online renewals can be completed using a credit card, debit card, or by direct debit from a U.S. bank account any time of day, and any day of the week.

To renew online, businesses need their nine-digit Federal Employer Identification Number or Social Security Number, and also their Business License Number. The Business License Number remains consistent each year, but can also be found on the business’s current State of Delaware business license.

Future Effective Dates

As you may already know, the last filing date of the year is December 30, 2011. Do you have a need for your filing to be effective December 31, 2011, or even January 1, 2012 or later? Here is a helpful tip that can help you accomplish your goal even though our office and the Division of Corporations will be closed those dates.

Delaware law provides for a future effective date of a document which allows you to file many certificates up to ninety (90) days before the day that you want the document to be effective. The effective date must be set forth in the document.

To instruct Delaware Intercorp, Inc. to use an effective date for your certificate of incorporation/formation, you can use the “notes” section of the online order form to indicate your specific needs, for example, effective on January 1, 2012.

Remember, we would need to receive your order before the desired date. For December 31, 2011 through January 2, 2012, desired dates, this means we would have to receive the order well in advance of the close of business on December 30th to give us enough time to process your order.

The future effective option is not only available during the holidays, but the entire year.
