Why Do You Need Florida Reinstatement For Your LLC Or Corporation?

Falling into bad standing not only affects the credibility of a company but also revokes the benefits that come with its business entity type. If it remains a delinquent long enough, the state may even end up administratively dissolving it. When that happens, the company will have to go through the Florida reinstatement process to legally do business again.

What Is Needed To File For Reinstatement?

Returning the good standing status of an administratively dissolved company requires the completion of the reinstatement process. In Florida, this involves the submission of formal paperwork, filing of past due reports, and payment of corresponding fees and penalties.

LLC – There are two ways of reinstating a dissolved Florida LLC. You can file directly online through the Department of State website. Alternatively, you can download the LLC reinstatement form, fill it out, and submit it by mail or in person to the Division of Corporations. You will also have to pay for all missed annual report fees.

Corporation – The same applies to corporations. You can either submit online or in paper form. Use the Corporation Reinstatement form and file it with the Department of State by mail or in person, along with the filing fee and all missed annual report fees.

How Much Will It Cost To Reinstate?

LLC – The reinstatement fee for dissolved LLCs is $100. The annual report fee costs $138.75 per year since your company’s administrative dissolution.

Corporation – The filing fee for reinstating Florida corporations is $600. Each missed annual report costs $150 per year since the administrative dissolution.


How Long Will This Process Take?

LLC – If you file online, the Department of State will take approximately 2-4 business days. For mailed submissions, the division may take around a week. If you file in person, you can request same-day service for no additional charge.

Corporation – The processing of corporate Florida reinstatement filings normally takes around 2-4 working days. If you submit by mail, the processing time may be a week. Meanwhile, you can request the division to process a walk-in submission while you wait.
