Delaware Future Effective Dates

Did you know that Delaware law allows a future effective date (and even time) for any type of filing 90 days from the date filed?  This is especially useful this time of year.  Filing now with a future effective date permits you to secure a desired filing date when the Division of Corporations is closed (eg: January 1), avoid rush fees to meet a deadline at the end of the year, or prevent problems related to missing a crucial deadline because a filing was rejected while you were away for the holidays.

And, if you are ready to take action now to form a company for the new year, but want to avoid paying franchise tax for the current year, you can request a filing have a 2016 effective date.

Language regarding the future effective date has to be included on the document to be filed in addition to simply being requested.  Please let us know your needs at the point of order if Delaware Intercorp, Inc. will be preparing the document for you.

Keep in mind that certain certificates (eg: certificate of status) cannot be issued until the applicable date has arrived.
