How to reinstate a Colorado LLC
Revival of Colorado LLC with Colorado Department of State
How to reinstate a Colorado Limited Liability Company:
To reinstate your LLC in Colorado, you submit online the completed Articles of Reinstatement. This form is for domestic LLCs only. A foreign limited liability company that has withdrawn its authority to do business in Colorado needs to file online the Statement of Foreign Entity Authority. Domestic LLCs that have voluntarily dissolved may file new Articles of Organization for half the price of the Articles of Reinstatement; however, you would appear as a new company. Articles of Reinstatement allows a business to appear as if continually in good standing, which is practical for maintaining tax or employer information with other Colorado agencies. You can go to the link found below to file your reinstatement.
How much will it cost to revive a Colorado LLC?
The online processing fee for Articles of Reinstatement is $100.00.
