I have a Minnesota LLC. I heard that it expires unless you renew it. What do I need to do to renew it?

How do I renew my LLC to keep it active?

Your LLC needs to be renewed each year beginning the year after it is formed/created.

Your LLC needs to be renewed each year beginning the year after it is formed/created. For example, if you formed your business in 2012, your first renewal would not be due until the end of 2013. You should receive a reminder from the Minnesota Secretary of State's Office outlining the options for online or paper filing, but it is a good idea to keep a reminder for yourself to take care of the filing regardless of whether you receive a notification. To file a Minnesota LLC renewal online:
  1. Visit http://mblsportal.sos.state.mn.us/
  2. Click on the appropriate tab to enter either your business name or file number, then click the [Search] button.
  3. Find your business in the list of results.
  4. Click on the link “Details” located on the right side of the page to access your business record.
  5. Click on [File Amendment or Renewal].
Annual renewal is free. If you don't renew in time, you will have to pay a reactivation fee, which is currently about $35.
