FAQ - Reinstatement (WA)

My Washington business was dissolved. How do I get it reinstated back to active status?

Administrative dissolutions occur for a number of reasons. The most common reason is failure to file an initial or annual report. If your Washington business was administratively dissolved you may file the reinstatement/reactivation paperwork online by creating a user account, logging in, and selecting Reactivate Business in the new Corporations and Charities Filing System (CCFS). Reinstatement fees for Washington profit corporations, LLCs, and LPs are $140 plus all delinquent fees. The Washington nonprofit reinstatement fees are $35 plus all delinquent fees.

Note: Administrative dissolutions for domestic entities have 5 years from the date of dissolution to file the reinstatement.
