Our experienced state attorney will reach out to the California state offices and tax departments to find out the steps your California corporation needs to take to be reactivated and typically have the answer in a single day.
Then in just 3 business days (typically), I’ll have the corporation’s documents and tax returns prepared and ready for you to sign, while our attorney addresses the legal matters.
Why Is Your California Corporation Suspended?
Whether your California corporation is active or not, it has to annually file a tax return with the Franchise Tax Board – and pay at least $800 a year.
If the corporation misses the deadline or fails to file, there may be penalties as much as $700 plus interest. These can lead either the FTB or Californian Secretary of State to suspend your corporation.
The FTB can also charge additional monthly delinquent penalties of 5%, with a monthly maximum of 25%, plus additional interest charges starting from the date of the deadline.
Furthermore, if your California corporation fails to provide information to the FTB within a certain timeframe, or comply with other requests, the FTB can also charge additional penalties up to $2,000.
How A Suspension Impacts Your Business
While suspended, your corporation can’t operate or do any business. In other words, no business transactions including (but not limited to): bank account deposits, withdrawal and transfers, asset transfers, loans, or sales. Any kind of transaction relating to your corporation’s business is illegal.
This also has big legal implications. While your California Corporation is suspended, it’s unable to defend any legal actions, court cases or lawsuits. Even a response to litigation already in process is illegal.
You might even lose the rights to your corporation’s name – while suspended, you have no right to protect it and other corporations can form or use it.
