How to reinstate a Kansas Corporation:
Kansas allows both foreign and domestic corporations to reinstate following involuntary dissolution. If a corporation forfeits its authority for failure to file an annual report or to pay the fee, the corporation may be reinstated by submitting a Kansas Corporate Certificate of Reinstatement, the past due annual report(s), and all fees and penalties, due to the SOS. All the required documents must be in one envelope.
Domestic Kansas corporations that dissolve voluntarily may resume business if they file a Certificate of Revocation of Dissolution with the SOS within three years following dissolution.
Submit corporate reinstatement documents to:
Kansas Office of the Secretary of State
Memorial Hall, 1st Floor
120 S.W. 10th Avenue
Topeka, KS 66612-1594
Phone: (785) 296-4564
Fax: (785) 296-4570
Submit one original for filing. After processing, it will be mailed to the corporation.
Fax filing is allowed for an additional $20 fee
