How To File A North Dakota LLC Amendment

Step By Step Guide To North Dakota LLC Amendments

How to file a North Dakota LLC Amendment:

To make amendments to your domestic North Dakota limited liability company, provide the completed form, Limited Liability Company Articles of Amendment to the Secretary of State (SOS).

To amend your foreign LLCs Certificate of Authority, mail or fax the form, Amended Certificate of Authority Foreign Limited Liability Company Application to the North Dakota SOS. This form is required to be filed if you are changing the name of your foreign LLC or to correct a statement on the Certificate of Authority that is no longer true. If you change the name of your LLC, you must file a current original Certificate of Fact from the government officer where LLC’s Articles of Organization are filed.

The amendment form you need is available on the SOS website (see link below). The forms are also available in your online account when you sign up for registered agent service with Northwest. The LLC amendment forms include a Credit Card Payment Authorization section that must be completed if you are paying by credit card. North Dakota SOS accepts VISA, Master Card, or Discover and you must include credit card payment if you are filing by fax. If you are filing by mail or walk in, you may also pay your fees by check.

Can you re-state the initial articles instead of filing an amendment?

No. You would have to file the amendment, then restate the articles if you want to include a new amendment.

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

Amendments may include or modify any provision that is required or permitted to be in the articles or to omit any provision not required to be in the articles.

How much does a North Dakota Limited Liability Company amendment cost?

To amend your domestic North Dakota LLC, there is a $50 filing fee required.
To amend your foreign LLC, there is a filing fee of $50.

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

Processing normally takes the SOS 7 to 10 business days. North Dakota does not offer expedited filing.

How will the LLC amendment be returned?

You only have to file one copy of the amendment. Send two copies if you want a copy bearing the filing stamp sent back to you after filing.

What state agency do you file an amendment with?

Submit LLC amendment documents to:

Secretary of State State of North Dakota
600 E Boulevard Ave, Dept. 108
PO Box 5513
Bismarck, ND 58506-5513
Fax: (701) 328-2992

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

An amendment is not necessary to change the names and addresses of the managers or governors of a limited liability company. Such changes may be recorded on the next Annual Report filed by the LLC.

Can you change the North Dakota registered agent on the amendment?

If you are filing an amendment for something else, you can change your North Dakota registered agent on the amendment. However, an amendment is not necessary to change your registered agent or the agent’s address. You may simply file the change of agent/address form.

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

Filing articles of amendment is not necessary to change the principal executive office. This change can be made free of charge by notifying the SOS by phone or in writing.
