Reinstate a Business
Forget to File Your Annual Report? Need to Reinstate Your Business?
If your business was "administratively dissolved" for failure to file an annual report within the last five years, you can request to have the business entity reinstated.
A special form is required to reinstate a business entity that has been administratively dissolved for less than 5-years. You must use this form to correct any inaccurate information about the business and pay the reinstatement fees indicated on the form.
Follow These Steps to Get Reinstated
1. Confirm your business is eligible for reinstatement.
Go to Business Registry Web Renewal and enter the registry number of the business to be reinstated.
2. Reinstate online or generate the appropriate forms.
If your business is eligible for reinstatement, you will either see the message, "Click here to generate and print a reinstatement form" or receive the message "Save Time Reinstate Online".
3. Confirm your business name is available.
Use our Business Name Availability Check to see if the business name is still available. If you are changing the business name, select the corresponding articles of amendment form for your business type from our forms page.
4. Update your business information.
Make any corrections needed to your business information. If you are completing the reinstatement forms, cross out incorrect information and write in the correct information on the annual report form accompanying the reinstatement application.
