Your company might have received a solicitation entitled “Annual Minutes Disclosure Statement” in the forms shown. These solicitations offer to complete corporate meeting minutes on behalf of your Georgia corporation for a fee. You might be confused by these solicitations because they are very official looking and in a form similar to forms sent out by the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office.
Please be aware that this is a total scam. You are not required by Georgia law to file corporate minutes with the Secretary of State. You are, however, required to prepare and maintain annual minutes of your corporation. Many of my clients ask that I assist them with their first annual meeting and then prepare the minutes on their own in the following years. Please let me know if you would like my assistance.
