How To File A Connecticut LLC Amendment
Step By Step Guide To Connecticut LLC Amendments
How to file a Connecticut LLC Amendment:
To make amendments to your limited liability company in Connecticut, file an Articles of Amendment form with the Connecticut Secretary of the State (SOTS) by mail, in person or by fax. Connecticut SOTS provides forms for filing but does not require that you use them. You can draft your own articles of amendment. Original signatures are not required.
You can pay the filing fee with Visa, MasterCard, check, or cash. Faxed documents should be accompanied by the Fax Filing Service Request sheet with your Visa or MasterCard information. Make checks payable to Secretary of the State.
Can you re-state the initial articles instead of filing an amendment?
Yes. You can choose to amend and restate the articles right on the SOTS Articles of Amendment form. You have to restate each article so you may need to attach an additional page.
Are there any specifics you can or can’t include with a Connecticut LLC amendment?
If you want to change the name of a Connecticut LLC, you can do so by simply listing the new name in Section 2(A) of the amendment form.
How much does a Connecticut Limited Liability Company amendment cost?
It costs $120 to file LLC articles of amendment with the Connecticut SOTS.
You can expedite processing for an additional $50 fee.
How long does it take the state to process a Connecticut Limited Liability Company amendment?
Normal processing is complete in 3-5 business days. If you drop off documents, they are processed normally unless you pay for expedited service.
Processing is completed within 24 hours when you submit an Expedited Service Request with your amendment.
How will your Connecticut LLC amendment be returned?
Documents processed normally are mailed to the submitter.

Can you change the Connecticut LLC members or managers on an amendment?
Connecticut LLCs are required to list the members and managers in the LLCs annual report. If the members or managers change after the annual report is filed, the LLC can file an Interim Notice of Change of Manager or Member with the SOTS. If the change happens within 30 days before the annual report is due, you can wait and just make the change on the report.
If you just need to update member/manager information, it is much cheaper to file the interim change form.
Can you change the Connecticut registered agent on the amendment?
No, you can’t file an amendment to change your Connecticut registered agent. You have to file a domestic Change of Agent form to change your Connecticut registered agent.
Can you change the principal office address and/or the mailing address on an LLC amendment?
You can change your principal address on an amendment, but amendments are so expensive. It is cheaper to file a Change of Business Address. The form is the same for all entities. You can also change your principal address on your Connecticut Annual report.
