Corporate Annual Minutes alert


The North Carolina Secretary of State’s web site has posted an alert about a company called “Compliance Services” that is mailing official-looking notices to North Carolina corporations offering to prepare their annual minutes for a $125 fee.

While corporations are required by NCGS Section 55-7-01(a) to hold an annual meeting of shareholders, minutes of these meetings are not required to be filed with the Secretary of State (or anywhere else). Compliance Services is not affiliated with the Secretary of State’s office or any other state department or agency, and is the subject of an injunction prohibiting it from conducting business in NC.

Please see full alert below for more information.
