Delaware Certificate of Renewal and Revival

Should your company fail to maintain a Registered Agent or fail to pay franchise tax and file annual reports, it may lose its right to conduct business, lose its right to its name and have its charter cancelled. Sometimes this is called “going void”. Should this happen to your company and you want to keep your company and reinstate it, you may restore Good Standing Status by filing a Delaware Certificate of Renewal and Revival after paying all back penalties and fees, paying outstanding registered agent fees, and paying a reinstatement fee.

A Certificate of Renewal and Revival regains Current Good Standing for your company after it has gone void by failing to pay franchise tax or maintain a Registered Agent.

We charge a $189 processing fee (plus state fees) to file a Delaware Certificate of Renewal and Revival for a Delaware Corporation, LLC, LP, or LLP. We prepare this certificate for the signature of an Officer, Director, or Member.

To file a Certificate of Renewal and Revival, the payment of following charges are required:

  • Back state taxes.
  • The state filing fee.
  • The Agents and Corporations, Inc. (Incnow) Registered Agent fee and processing fee.

If you call our office, we will determine (via the Delaware Corporate Imaging System – “D.C.I.S.”) the amount of tax you owe, plus any applicable penalties and interest.

We can also perform this service if we are not currently your Registered Agent. For $90 per year, you can include a Change of Registered Agent to Incnow on your Certificate of Renewal and Revival.

When deciding where to form your company, consider that Delaware has advantages over your home state that may benefit you. Go
