Letters of Good Standing
Effective November 1, 2010 a Letter of Good Standing for reinstatement purposes may be obtained by contacting the Secretary of State’s Office (SOS) at (502) 564-3490 or by accessing their website at: http://www.sos.ky.gov/bus/business-filings/Pages/Annual-Reports.aspx
Scroll down to the Administrative Dissolution and Reinstatement header and follow the three-step reinstatement instructions listed below.
In order to reinstate, the business entity should:
- Print the Reinstatement Application via the Organization Search page of the Office of the Secretary of State Web site.
- After identifying the business entity, select the Reinstatement Package Button at the top of the page.
- Mail or hand deliver the Reinstatement Application to the Office of the Secretary of State. The SOS will request, on the entities behalf, a letter of good standing from the Kentucky Department of Revenue and, in the case of profit companies, the Division of Unemployment Insurance. When both good standing letters are received, the SOS will process the reinstatement application.
In the event a business entity wishes for the SOS not to request letters of good standing, the entity must contact the agencies on their own and submit the good standing letters with the Reinstatement Application to be processed by the SOS.
