Business Formation Fees
Kansas files several types of business fees and attaches a different filing fee for each formation document. For example, there is a $90 filing fee for domestic for profit corporations and a $115 filing fee for foreign (non-Kansas) corporations. Each year business entities are required to file an annual report and pay a filing fee. The articles of formation may be amended by filing the appropriate amendment document with a filing fee. Many business filings may be completed electronically. Please visit the Business Fiing Center at www.kssos.org. Paper forms are available in the Filings & Forms section of the web site.
Missouri's initial fee for a domestic corporation is $50 on the first $30,000 shares/authorized capital, plus $5 tech fee, plus $3 for the certificate, for a minimum total of $58. Plus $5 on each additional $10,000 shares/authorized capital.
