(1) A foreign limited liability company whose certificate of authority has been revoked may apply to the department for reinstatement at any time after the effective date of the revocation. The foreign limited liability company applying for reinstatement must submit all fees and penalties then owed by the foreign limited liability company at rates provided by law at the time the foreign limited liability company applies for reinstatement, together with an application for reinstatement prescribed and furnished by the department, which is signed by both the registered agent and an authorized representative of the company and states:
(a) The name under which the foreign limited liability company is registered to transact business in this state.
(b) The street address of the company’s principal office and its mailing address.
(c) The jurisdiction of the company’s formation and the date on which it became qualified to transact business in this state.
(d) The company’s federal employer identification number or, if none, whether one has been applied for.
(e) The name, title or capacity, and address of at least one person who has authority to manage the company.
(f) Additional information that is necessary or appropriate to enable the department to carry out this chapter.
(2) In lieu of the requirement to file an application for reinstatement as described in subsection (1), a foreign limited liability company whose certificate of authority has been revoked may submit all fees and penalties owed by the company at the rates provided by law at the time the company applies for reinstatement, together with a current annual report, signed by both the registered agent and an authorized representative of the company, which contains the information described in subsection (1).
(3) If the department determines that an application for reinstatement contains the information required under subsection (1) or subsection (2) and that the information is correct, upon payment of all required fees and penalties, the department shall reinstate the foreign limited liability company’s certificate of authority.
(4) When a reinstatement becomes effective, it relates back to and takes effect as of the effective date of the revocation of authority and the foreign limited liability company may resume its activities in this state as if the revocation of authority had not occurred.
(5) The name of the foreign limited liability company whose certificate of authority has been revoked is not available for assumption or use by another business entity until 1 year after the effective date of revocation of authority unless the limited liability company provides the department with a record executed pursuant to s. 605.0203 which authorizes the immediate assumption or use of its name by another limited liability company.
(6) If the name of the foreign limited liability company applying for reinstatement has been lawfully assumed in this state by another business entity, the department shall require the foreign limited liability company to comply with s. 605.0906 before accepting its application for reinstatement.
