Reinstate a Business
Forget to file your annual report and need to reinstate your business entity?
If your business was "administratively dissolved" for failure to file an annual report within the last five years, you may be able to request to have the business entity reinstated.
A special form is required to reinstate a business entity that has been administratively dissolved for less than 5-years. You must use this form to correct any inaccurate information about the business and pay the reinstatement fees indicated on the form.
Follow the steps outlined below to use our Business Registry Web Renewal page to generate and print the forms required to reinstate your business.
Step 1 Go to Business Registry Web Renewal and enter the registry number of the
business to be reinstated.
Step 2 If your business is eligible for reinstatement you will see the message "You can generate
and print your reinstatement papers by clicking here". Click the link to generate and print the
reinstatement and annual report forms.
Step 3 Use our Business Name Availability Check to see if the business name is still available.
If you are changing the business name, please select the corresponding articles of amendment form for your business type from our Forms page.
Step 4 Cross out any other incorrect business information or addresses, and write-in the correct
information on the annual report form accompanying the reinstatement application.
Step 5 Sign and return both forms with the fees indicated to the Corporation Division.
