IMPORTANT NOTICE SOLICITATION FROM WORKPLACE COMPLIANCE SERVICES
SOLICITATION FROM WORKPLACE COMPLIANCE SERVICES
This email notice is being sent to all Garfield & Hecht, P.C. clients with entities for whom we serve as registered agent with the Colorado Secretary of State.
It has recently come to our attention that an organization known as Workplace Compliance Services (“WCS”) is sending solicitations to Colorado entities seeking a $85 payment to file the entity’s periodic report. The form from WCS is captioned “2018 – Periodic Report Instruction Form,” and a copy is attached to this email.
Even though WCS’ form looks official, WCS is a private organization and is not affiliated with the Colorado Secretary of State. Each year the Colorado Secretary of State charges a $10 fee to maintain an entity’s good standing. WCS’ solicitation does nothing except charge you $75 to make the $10 payment to the Colorado Secretary of State. WCS does not serve as your registered agent or do anything else.
If Garfield & Hecht, P.C. is serving as your entity’s registered agent you should discard WCS’ solicitation and you should not pay WCS. If we serve as your entity’s registered agent, we alert you when your entity is up for renewal, take care of the $10 filing fee for the renewal and, after renewing the entity, serve as the entity’s registered agent for the year. We also forward to you a certificate of good standing from the Colorado Secretary of State.
