LLCs doing business in Iowa must file a Biennial Report every 2 years to keep your LLC in compliance and in good standing with the state.

You can file your LLC’s Biennial Report by mail or online.

Fees and Processing Times

  • If you file by mail, the fee is $60 and the processing time is 7-14 business days
  • If you file online, the fee is $45 and the processing time is immediate

Due Date

The first Biennial Report is due between January 1st and April 1st of the first odd-numbered year, following the year in which your LLC was formed.

If you continue to ignore this requirement and do not file by August 8th, the state will administratively dissolve (shut down) your Iowa LLC.
