Reinstatement Information

Reinstatement Information

If your company has been administratively dissolved or revoked for failure to file an annual/biennial report with our office, maintain a registered agent, or the corporate existence has expired, the company must apply to reinstate in order to continue doing business.

The company will need to file an application to reinstate and other documentation to correct the grounds for administrative dissolution.  

 

Domestic Entities:

To reinstate your domestic limited liability company or corporation (including non-profit), please contact our office at sos.corp@nebraska.gov to receive the reinstatement application and fee worksheet.  Submit the application by filing either in-person or via mail.  Online filing is not currently available for reinstatement.   

Foreign Entities:

To reinstate your foreign corporation (including non-profit), please contact our office at sos.corp@nebraska.gov to receive the reinstatement application and fee worksheet. The form can be returned in person or mailed to our office. 

To re-qualify a foreign limited liability company recently revoked, complete the Application for a Certificate of Authority and file online using eDelivery.

How to Obtain and File the Application for Reinstatement:

Please contact our office at sos.corp@nebraska.gov to receive the reinstatement application and fee worksheet. The fee worksheet provides the total fee to reinstate. Please make all checks payable to the Nebraska Secretary of State.

Submit the documents for filing either via mail or in person at the Secretary of State’s Office.  The Reinstatement application is not currently available online.   

If you need to have your reinstatement processed quickly, we recommend filing in person at our office in downtown Lincoln.     

Entity Specific Information:

Foreign Limited Liability Companies and voluntarily dissolved entities cannot file for reinstatement.

Domestic and Foreign Limited Liability Partnerships can only apply for reinstatement for up to 2 years after being administratively dissolved.

Except for Limited Liability Partnerships, entities that have been inactive in our records for over 5 years can apply for late reinstatement.  The filing fee is $500 for the application for late reinstatement ($100 for Homeowner’s Association).  Additional fees such as past biennial report fees and interest may also apply.   

Notification Regarding Reinstatement:

Please allow one week for the processing of your reinstatement application and fees.  You will be notified by mail once the application has been processed.   

Once your application has been processed, the status of your business will show as “Active” on the Secretary of State online Corporate & Business Search and you may order a Certificate of Good Standing.
