Annual Report filing instructions:
The filing deadline for Annual Reports for Fiscal Assessment for jurisdictional operations conducted in the 2014 calendar year is April 30, 2015, as directed in the Commission's January 28, 2015 order in Case No.15-01-AU-RPT. Please check the 2014 Fiscal Annual Report List for certificate and company contact information.
Please note that a separate report should be filed for each certificate or authority held.
A standardized Affidavit form has been adopted for all annual reports. The affidavit must be signed by a company officer authorized to file the report, and duly notarized. The form adds a new section that allows the officer to designate the employee, accountant or third-party contractor, who will make the actual filing on behalf of your company. Here's a sample affidavit in JPG format, showing the typical situation of a company president signing a report that will be filed by a third-party accountant. Please note that only the company officer's signature needs to be notarized. The employee, accountant or third-party contractor can complete the bottom section, if applicable, after officer's signature is notarized. A scanned image or picture of the completed affidavit (in JPG format) must be uploaded as part of the new on-line filing process for all industry segments.
In addition to the uniform core report and affidavit, some industry segments (see the chart below) will be required to upload supplemental schedules as part of the filing process.
PLEASE NOTE: To file an amended report, or to update your contact information, please send your contact information, user name and certificate number to the annual reports mailbox.
For the current status of a certificate or authority, please check the Regulated Company List.
