How to Revive a Colorado LLC

To revive a delinquent Colorado LLC, you’ll need to file the Statement Curing Delinquency with the Colorado Secretary of State. You’ll also have to correct the problems that led to your Colorado LLC’s delinquency. To reinstate a voluntarily dissolved LLC, you can file Articles of Reinstatement. Below, we provide a free, step-by-step guide to curing delinquency and reinstating your Colorado LLC.

Revive or Reinstate a Colorado LLC

How you reinstate your Colorado LLC depends on its status. The Colorado Secretary of State no longer administratively or involuntarily dissolves LLCs, but it will give your LLC delinquent status if it fails to:

  • file periodic reports
  • appoint and maintain a registered agent
  • pay fees or penalties

To get your delinquent Colorado LLC back into business, you’ll need to submit the following to the Colorado Secretary of State:

  • a Statement Curing Delinquency
  • $100 filing fee
  • any owed fees or penalties

 

What information do I need for the Colorado Statement Curing Delinquency?

The Statement Curing Delinquency is a two-page form that requests basic information about your Colorado LLC, including:

  • your ID number
  • your entity name
  • the jurisdiction where it was formed
  • the name and address of your registered agent
  • the address of your principal office
  • a delayed effective date, if needed
  • the name and address of the deliverer, if needed

The ID number, entity name, and jurisdiction fields will already be pre-filled with information from the Secretary of State’s records and can’t be changed. However, you can change any other pre-filled fields to reflect new information.

Can I change my Colorado registered agent when I file the Statement Curing Delinquency?

Yes. The form will come pre-filled with your previous registered agent’s information, but you can delete the old information and change your Colorado registered agent on this form.

How do I file the Colorado Statement Curing Delinquency?

You can only file the Statement Curing Delinquency online, through the Secretary of State’s website. You’ll need to conduct a search for your business record. Once you find your business, you’ll see an option to file the Statement Curing Delinquency.

Where do I submit my Colorado Statement Curing Delinquency?

Submit the Colorado Statement Curing Delinquency to the Colorado Secretary of State. You can only file online.

How much will it cost to revive a delinquent LLC in Colorado?

The filing fee for a Statement Curing Delinquency is $100.

How long does it take the Secretary of State to process the Colorado Statement Curing Delinquency?

Because it’s filed online, the Statement Curing Delinquency is processed immediately.

How long do you have to revive a delinquent Colorado LLC?

Your Colorado LLC can remain delinquent indefinitely, and you can file a Statement Curing Delinquency at any time. However, after 400 days of delinquency, your Colorado LLC’s name becomes available for other companies to adopt.

What if my Colorado LLC’s name was taken during delinquency?

After your Colorado LLC is delinquent for 400 days, its name becomes available for other businesses to adopt. If it was taken, you’ll need to file Articles of Amendment to change your name before you file the Statement Curing Delinquency.

Reinstating a Voluntarily Dissolved Colorado LLC

If you dissolved your Colorado LLC and want to reinstate your business, you’ll need to submit Articles of Reinstatement to the Colorado Secretary of State.

What information do I need for the Articles of Reinstatement?

The Articles of Reinstatement form asks for basic information about your Colorado LLC, including:

  • your ID number
  • your entity name
  • your entity name following reinstatement (if your name was taken, add “reinstated” to the end)
  • the name and address of your registered agent
  • the address of your principal office
  • the date your entity was formed
  • the date it was dissolved, if known
  • a delayed effective date, if needed
  • the Colorado statute under which the entity was formed

The Colorado statute will be a 6-digit, hyphenated number or the name of an act. You can find this information on your Articles of Organization.

The ID number and entity name will be pre-filled with information from the Secretary of State’s records, and you can’t change that information on this form.

What if my Colorado LLC’s name was taken?

When a Colorado LLC is dissolved, its name immediately becomes available for other companies to use. If your name was taken, you can no longer use it. However, you can’t use this form to change your name. Instead, in the field labeled “your entity’s name after reinstatement,” write your LLC’s name plus the word “Reinstated.” When your Colorado LLC is officially reinstated, you can file Articles of Amendment to change your name.

How do I file the Colorado Articles of Reinstatement?

Articles of Reinstatement can only be filed online. Search for your LLC’s record on the Secretary of State’s website and file from there.
