How is the process?

On some occasions, companies that were dissolved administratively, it means, by the state, decide to resume operations by reactivating the company.

This term of reinstatement is also known as restitution or reactivation of a company, and it's a process carried out at the Secretary of State.

Additionally, this process is not valid when the company was voluntarily dissolved. For more information about dissolutions, click here.

  • The dissolution of the company that will be reactivated should have been administratively and not voluntarily.
  • The Reinstatement must be done during the period stipulated by each state.
  • All the obligations, penalties and state interests must be already paid by the company.

The process to reactivate your company is very simple:

  • We review in the state the value of the penalties and interests that the company may have.
  • The payment of penalties and interest is made.
  • The Reinstatement presentation is made.

It is important to know that the value of the process doesn't include the amount of penalties and interest that the company owes to the state.
