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

When a company loses its good standing status with the state, it may end up facing noncompliance penalties and losing the benefits that come with its business entity type. If it remains inactive long enough, the state may end up administratively dissolving it, then you would need to file a Mississippi reinstatement.

What Is Needed To File For Reinstatement?

Reinstatement is the process that an administratively dissolved company has to undergo to settle its pending obligations with the state and get back into good standing. Laws governing those companies may vary depending on the state.

In Mississippi, the Secretary of State will notify a business entity if there are grounds for dissolution. If the company fails to correct them within 60 days upon the receipt of the notice, the state will administratively dissolve the business.

When that happens, the company continues to exist. However, its purpose is for the owner to either wind up its affairs or reinstate it.

The application for reinstatement in Mississippi is simple. You only have to apply using the online filing system of the Secretary of State. Corporations will also need a tax clearance certificate from the Department of Revenue. You will find a link in the system that will redirect you to the Department of Revenue website.

How Much Will It Cost To Reinstate?

LLC – An administratively dissolved LLC needs to pay the $50 filing fee for the Mississippi reinstatement.
