What happens if you don’t file a cancellation and just let your annual report filings go unfiled?
The Nevada Secretary of State requires all business entities to file an annual list and an annual state business license application. As soon as you miss your due date, you will be sent a written delinquency notice stating that your company’s status is now “Default,” and must be current by the following due date or your foreign entity will have its authority to transact business revoked. This delinquency notice will be delivered to your registered agent, so be sure your hire a dependable one like Northwest. We will notify you to log into your account and download your documents on the day we receive them.
If you just don’t file an annual report, how long before you lose your charter?
The Nevada Secretary of State will mail a written notice stating that your charter is in default as the annual report was not filed. If you do not respond by the following year due date in which the annual report filing was required, your charter to do business in Nevada will be revoked. If your business status has been revoked for 5 years or more, you will be permanently revoked and you will have to file as a new entity. If a company is administratively dissolved, it does not terminate the authority of its registered agent, unless a Statement of Resignation of Registered Agent form is filed.
What are the late fees and penalties to re-register if you didn’t file a withdrawal correctly?
If you wish to re-register after your charter has been revoked for not withdrawing properly, all delinquent annual fees and late penalties must be paid. Limited liability companies pay $125 per year and $75 late penalty for missed annual listings. They also pay $200 per year and $100 late penalty for missed business license filings; as well as a reinstatement form and fee of $300 is required, if filed within five (5) years. Corporate fees and penalties are the same unless you have a large amount of authorized stock, in which case you would owe even more to re-register.
