An entity’s certificate of formation or certificate of authority can be revoked for:

  • Failure to file an annual report
  • Failure to maintain a Registered Agent
  • Failure to maintain a Registered Office
  • Failure to pay fees

A revocation is an administrative action, not a voluntary dissolution. Only upon the corporation’s formal dissolution will the Rhode Island Tax Division cease to assess the Tax Administrator’s annual charge. Entities that have been revoked may reinstate.

Reinstatement Procedures

How to reinstate your corporation:

Upon filing the required documents and paying all fees, the Certificate of Revocation will be withdrawn and the entity retroactively reinstated in good standing as if its Certificate had not been revoked.
