USA – Delaware Company Restoration – Company Reinstatement
We can reinstate your Delaware Corp or LLC with the Delaware Secretary of State.
When a Delaware company has failed to pay their yearly taxes or maintain a Registered Agent, it may fall into a status other that Good Standing. To return your entity back into a Good Standing status, the Delaware Code requires that certain documents are filed and all back taxes and filing fees paid.
A forfeited Delaware Corporation may have its charter restored by filing a Certificate for renewal and revival of Charter in accordance with General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware. Before we can complete and file the Certificate, all taxes due the Delaware State at the time the corporation became forfeited must be paid.
