Have you ever wondered what the term Franchise Tax means or why you have to pay tax for your  company in Delaware?

When you hear the word “franchise,” it may conjure up images like McDonald's, Burger King and Subway. When speaking from a corporate standpoint, “franchise” means the privilege given by the state to have an entity filed with them. Here in Delaware, the franchise tax is the annual fee you pay for that privilege.

If you have a corporation, your franchise tax is due by March 1st every year. If you have an LLC, your franchise tax is due by June 1st every year. As your Delaware Registered Agent, we will send you plenty of notifications and the official tax notices well in advance of the actual due dates so you have ample time to make payment arrangements.
