323A.1003 ANNUAL REGISTRATION.

(a) Each calendar year beginning in the calendar year following the calendar year in which a partnership files a statement of qualification or in which a foreign partnership becomes authorized to transact business in this state, the secretary of state must mail by first class mail an annual registration form to the street address of the partnership's chief executive office, if located in Minnesota, the office in this state, if the chief executive office is not located in Minnesota, or address of the registered agent of the partnership as shown on the records of the secretary of state when the chief executive office is not located in Minnesota and no other Minnesota office exists. The form must include the following notice:

"NOTICE: Failure to file this form by December 31 of this year will result in the revocation of the statement of qualification of this limited liability partnership without further notice from the secretary of state pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, section 323A.1003, subsection (d)."

(b) A limited liability partnership, and a foreign limited liability partnership authorized to transact business in this state, shall file an annual registration in the office of the secretary of state which contains:

(1) the name of the limited liability partnership and the state or other jurisdiction under whose laws the foreign limited liability partnership is formed;

(2) the street address, including the zip code, of the partnership's chief executive office and, if different, the street address, including the zip code, of an office of the partnership in this state, if any;

(3) if the partnership does not have an office in this state, the name and street address, including the zip code, of the partnership's current agent for service of process; and

(4) if the agent for service of process under clause (3) is not an individual, the name, street address, and telephone number of an individual who may be contacted for purposes other than service of process with respect to the limited liability partnership.

(c) An annual registration must be filed once each calendar year beginning in the year following the calendar year in which a partnership files a statement of qualification or a foreign partnership becomes authorized to transact business in this state.

(d) The secretary of state must revoke the statement of qualification of a partnership that fails to file an annual registration when due or pay the required filing fee. The secretary of state must issue a certificate of revocation which must be filed in the office of the secretary of state. The secretary of state must also make available in an electronic format the names of the revoked limited liability companies.

(e) A revocation under subsection (d) only affects a partnership's status as a limited liability partnership and is not an event of dissolution of the partnership.

(f) A partnership whose statement of qualification has been revoked may apply to the secretary of state for reinstatement within one year after the effective date of the revocation. A partnership must file an annual registration to apply for reinstatement and pay a reinstatement fee of $135.

(g) A reinstatement under subsection (f) relates back to and takes effect as of the effective date of the revocation, and the partnership's status as a limited liability partnership continues as if the revocation had never occurred.
