As 2012 comes to an end, it is time for all businesses to wrap up their financial reporting for the fiscal year and prepare for 2013.  Most Homeowners fail to recognize that their Association is a not for profit corporation (a business).  Georgia has a few year-end reporting requirements for Associations year-end reporting, but it is important that Boards be mindful that these requirements are dictated by the Association bylaws, as well as requirements for not for profit corporations.

Whether an Association is self-managed or employs a Managing Agent, it is important to know the requirements and address them in a proactive manner. It is imperative that either the Board or Managing Agent know these requirements and meet the stated deadlines.  Among the items that should be addressed are the following;

    1099's delivered to all companies or persons who are not incorporated and who received payment from the Associations.

  • Tax returns for the Associations

  • Annual accounting audit

  • Registry with Secretary of State

  • Complete compilation of meeting minute books

  • Establish new vendor files

  • Organize and file 2012 records

  • Hold and document Annual Meeting/Election Meeting/Budget Adoption

  • Deliver coupon books for 2013 assessments

It is important that the Board and Managing Agent carefully review the community association bylaws for community specific requirements.

All fields are mandatory!
