How To File A Minnesota LLC Amendment

Step By Step Guide To Minnesota LLC Amendments

How to file a Minnesota LLC Amendment:

The Minnesota Secretary of State (SOS) allows filing in person, by mail, or online. The Minnesota SOS accepts cash or check for paper filings and credit card or check for electronic filings. Makes checks for fees payable to “MN Secretary of State.”

To file by mail or in person, submit either the Minnesota Amendment of Articles of Organization for a Limited Liability Company to the SOS. The form you need to amend your articles is available in your online account when you sign up for registered agent service with Northwest.

Keep the original copy and submit a legible photocopy to the SOS.

Can you restate the initial articles instead of filing an amendment?

Minnesota SOS accepts either amendments or restated articles. If an amendment does restate the articles, it must meet the same requirements as an LLC amendment.

Are there any specifics you can or can’t include with a Minnesota LLC amendment?

Minnesota LLC amendment must be filed if you want to change any information that is within the Articles of Organization.

How much does a Minnesota Limited Liability Company amendment cost?

There is a $35 filing fee for Minnesota LLC amendments.

How long does it take the state to process a Minnesota Limited Liability Company amendment?

How will the LLC amendment be returned?

What state agency do you file an amendment with?

Can you change the Minnesota LLC members or managers on an amendment?

However, if you submit custom articles of organization, you may include members and managers. Basically, they are not required to be listed in the articles, but you can list them and make changes with an amendment.

Can you change the Minnesota registered agent on the amendment?

Yes. You can change your Minnesota registered agent and office on the amendment form.

Can you change the principal office address and/or the mailing address on an LLC amendment?
