How to Cure a Colorado LLC Delinquency

A Colorado LLC becomes “Delinquent” when it fails to file a Periodic Report within 4 months after the Periodic Month. If your LLC is marked “Delinquent”, you won’t be able to do business in Colorado.

(The Periodic Month is the month the state approves your LLC.)

Your LLC can stay in “Delinquent” status for an unlimited period of time. If you don’t cure your “Delinquent” status in 400 days, your LLC name becomes available to others.

To cure your LLC’s “Delinquent” status, submit a Statement Curing Delinquency with the CO Secretary of State. Filing this document can only be done online.

The fee is $100. Make payment with a debit or credit card.

(Note: you don’t need to pay the annual fee of $10 for every year you didn’t file a Periodic Report.)

Here are the instructions:

  1. Type in the first few words of your LLC in the Record ID search box: http://www.sos.state.co.us/biz/FileDocSearchCriteria.do
  2. Click “ID number” to the left of your LLC name
  3. Click the “Confirm” button at the bottom
  4. Click on the “Statement Curing Delinquency” link
  5. Make sure your Registered Agent and mailing address are up to date
  6. Fill in the name and address where you would like the document returned to
  7. Click the “Submit” button at the bottom
  8. Make your payment (you will see a confirmation page after it’s processed)
  9. Save a copy by using the print option in your web browser (File > Print)

If you see Expired/Timed Out:

Do not file the Statement again unless you check your LLC’s document history. There is a chance your filing still went through.

  1. Search your LLC name here: http://www.sos.state.co.us/biz/BusinessEntityCriteriaExt.do
  2. Click “ID number” to the left of your LLC name
  3. Click “View History and Documents”. (If the form was filed correctly, it will appear in the History and Documents list.)
  4. If you don’t see the form listed, please try your filing again.
