Why Do You Need Oklahoma Reinstatement For Your LLC Or Corporation?
Losing your good standing status with the state may result in noncompliance penalties and administrative dissolution. Oklahoma reinstatement is the process you need to go through to restore a company to good standing status.
What Is Needed To File For Reinstatement?
Each state has a reinstatement process for administratively dissolved companies. It determines the steps you have to take and the requirements you need to complete.
LLC – In Oklahoma, an LLC can reinstate by filing a completed Application for Reinstatement form with the Secretary of State by mail or in person. You should also include any missed annual certificate filings and fees.
Corporation – An administratively dissolved Oklahoma corporation has to file a Certificate of Renewal, Revival, Extension, and Restoration form with the Secretary of State by mail or in person. Make sure that you settle all delinquent filings and pay the necessary fees.
How Much Will It Cost To Reinstate?
LLC – Oklahoma LLCs do not need to pay a filing fee for the reinstatement form. You will only have to pay for the amount you owe because of delinquent annual report filings.
Corporation – The filing fee for the reinstatement of a corporation in Oklahoma is $50. You will also have to pay any pending obligations because of missed annual business activity tax returns.
How Long Will This Process Take?
LLC – The normal processing of LLC Oklahoma reinstatement filings may take approximately a week. If you want to speed up the process, you can request one-day processing for an additional $25. You can only do this if you have settled all back annual certificates and payments.
