What is California LLC Dissolution?

A California LLC is created when the CA Secretary of State approves the Articles of Organization. A record of the California LLC is added to the list of LLCs which have officially registered with the California Secretary of State.  Once a LLC is registered with the California Secretary of State, that LLC immediately has both reporting and tax obligations which incur penalties if the obligations are not met by the required deadlines.   more...

Why do I need to Dissolve a California LLC?

As soon as a California LLC is registered with the CA Secretary of State, that LLC is responsible for recurring obligations of the California Secretary of State and the California Franchise Tax Board.  If the California LLC does not file reports or pay taxes then that CA Limited Liability Company could be responsible for penalties which go up as time goes by.

Unless you Dissolve your California LLC with the California Secretary of State that CA Limited Liability Company will be responsible for all recurring fees and penalties.

What do I have to do if I want to Dissolve a Foreign LLC that is tied to a CA Domestic LLC?

If there are Foreign LLCs in states other than California that are tied to the Domestic California LLC then each of those Foreign LLCs must be Dissolved before the California LLC is legally Dissolved.

How long before someone can use my LLC name in California after I Dissolve?

A California Limited Liability company name becomes available for anyone to use when the California LLC is Dissolved by the California Secretary of State. There are no LLC company name protections in California once a California LLC has been Dissolved by the California Secretary of State.

Do I have to publish a Notice of Dissolution of the California LLC?

There are no state of California requirements for the publication of a Notice of Dissolution of a California LLC.

While the California Secretary of State does not legally require the publication of a Notice of Dissolution of a California LLC, publication is a good way to notify anyone who might have a claim against the California LLC.  Evidence of publication might prove useful down the line if someone makes a claim against the CA Limited Liability Company after the California LLC has been dissolved.
  • We can prepare a Notice of Dissolution of the California LLC, make sure it gets published and obtain evidence of publication.
