SECTION 5135
Revocation application for reinstatement.
F.S. 608.5135
608.5135 Revocation; application for reinstatement.
(1)(a) If the certificate of authority of a limited liability company has been revoked, the foreign limited liability company may apply to the Department of State for reinstatement at any time after the effective date of revocation of authority. The application must:
1. Recite the name of the foreign limited liability company and the effective date of its revocation of authority;
2. State that the ground or grounds for revocation of authority either did not exist or have been eliminated and that no further grounds currently exist for revocation of authority;
3. State that the foreign limited liability company‚Äôs name satisfies the requirements of s. 608.506; and
4. State that all taxes, fees, and penalties owed by the limited liability company and computed at the rate provided by law at the time the foreign limited liability company applies for reinstatement have been paid; or
(b) As an alternative, the foreign limited liability company may submit a current annual report, signed by the registered agent and a manager or managing member, which substantially complies with the requirements of paragraph (a).
(2) If the Department of State determines that the application contains the information required by subsection (1) and that the information is correct, it shall cancel the certificate of revocation of authority.
(3) When the reinstatement is effective, it relates back to and takes effect as of the effective date of the revocation of authority, and the foreign limited liability company resumes carrying on its business as if the revocation of authority had never occurred.
(4) The name of the foreign limited liability company the certificate of authority of which has been revoked is not available for assumption or use by another limited liability company until 1 year after the effective date of revocation of authority unless the limited liability company provides the Department of State with an affidavit executed as required by s. 608.408 permitting the immediate assumption or use of its name by another limited liability company.
(5) If the name of the foreign limited liability company has been lawfully assumed in this state by another limited liability company, the Department of State shall require the foreign limited liability company to comply with s. 608.506 before accepting its application for reinstatement.
