WHAT IS A DECENNIAL REPORT?

It is a report of an entity’s continued existence. Decennial filings are made every ten years with the intent to identify business names and marks that are no longer in use, so that they may be reissued and placed back into the stream of commerce.

The Pennsylvania Department of the State requires a Decennial Report to be filed by December 31, 2021. Decennial filings are made every ten years with the intent of identifying business names and marks that are no longer in use.
