Why Do You Need A Vermont Reinstatement For Your LLC Or Corporation?

When the state administratively dissolves a company, it revokes the benefits that come with the business entity type and prevents it from operating. Vermont reinstatement is the process that will bring back a company to good standing so it can legally do business again.

What Is Needed To File For Reinstatement?

The Vermont reinstatement process and requirements depend on state laws. Vermont is among the states that do not have reinstatement forms.

An administratively dissolved Vermont company that wants to do business again should submit all missed annual reports and pay the corresponding fees. Inactive companies cannot print or electronically file annual reports, so you may need to contact the Secretary of State at (802) 828-2386 to get copies.

Original signatures are necessary, which is why you cannot submit the documents by fax. You will have to submit them in person or by mail. Use the following address:

Office of the Secretary of State

Corporations Division

128 State Street

Montpelier, Vermont 05609-1104

You should add a self-addressed envelope so that the Secretary of State can send an acknowledgment to you. You can only pay via checks payable to the Vermont Secretary of State.

What If My Company’s Name Is In Use When I Need To Reinstate?
