Corporate License Renewal Instructions
IMPORTANT: Before renewing your corporate license, be sure the individual license of the person (qualifier) connected to your business has been renewed.
Renewal applications must be submitted on-line or postmarked on or before August 2, 2021 to avoid reinstatement and late fees.
When you renew your corporate license, you will be required to attach a copy of your latest annual report filed with the NC Secretary of State. If your business is newly registered and an annual report has not been filed, attach the Articles of Organization/Incorporation. This requirement applies to business corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs) and other business entities registered with the NC Secretary of State. This requirement does not apply to partnerships and sole proprietorships that are registered with the County Register of Deeds.
To obtain a copy of the annual report, go to https://www.sosnc.gov/search/index/corp and use the “Search Business Registration” tool to find your business. The annual report may be found under document filings. If you intend to renew your corporate license on-line, save the annual report on your computer so that you will then be able to upload the annual report when prompted by the on-line renewal form. If you intend to renew by mail, print the annual report and include it with your renewal form.
The non-refundable license renewal fee is $100.00. For renewals submitted or postmarked after August 1 of renewal period, an additional $100.00 reinstatement fee and $25.00 late fee is due. We accept checks, or Visa, MasterCard or AMEX credit cards.
