Why Do You Need Kentucky Reinstatement For Your LLC or Corporation?

When a company falls into bad standing, it will have to face noncompliance fines and may lose the benefits offered by its entity type. One way of dealing with those issues is through Kentucky reinstatement.

What Is Needed To File For Reinstatement?

The reinstatement process varies depending on the state where your company is conducting its operations. In Kentucky, a dissolved company has to use the reinstatement packet.

Generally, the state will administratively dissolve a Kentucky company if it fails to file its annual report by June 30. You will have to complete the Reinstatement Application form and Reinstatement Annual Report form. You can also include a Statement of Change of Principal Office and Registered Office if you need it.

Additionally, an administratively dissolved business entity needs a Letter of Good Standing from the Revenue Cabinet. For-profit corporations also need a Letter of Good Standing from the Division of Unemployment Insurance. You can request the letter on your own or let the Secretary of State do it for you. The state will only process the reinstatement once they receive the letter.

How Much Will It Cost To Reinstate?

LLC – The reinstatement of an administratively dissolved LLC comes with a $100 fee. Delinquent annual reports cost $15 each. There is no late fee for past-due reports.

Corporation – When you reinstate your administratively dissolved corporation in Kentucky, you will have to pay the $100 fee. You will also have to pay $15 for every annual report you have failed to file. There is no late fee for past-due reports.

How Long Will This Process Take?

LLC – The Secretary of State normally starts processing LLC reinstatement filings within the day. However, it may take 3 business days to finish the filing process.
