If mail is received from the Secretary of State or other Agency / Business (Such as with the Annual Report) and the Client's address is not the current one on file with the State, we will attempt to contact the Client using all available means.
If company is not able to contact the client within a reasonable amount of time, and before due date for the Annual Report or otherwise, we will consider the Registered Agent Agreements canceled and forward the mail back to the Secretary of State, indicating that we do not have a current address on file and have not been able to contact the Client nor are its current registered agent.
In such case, the Annual Report will not be filed with the Secretary of State and they will seek to administratively dissolve the account with the State. It is important that the Client keeps the Company informed at all times of any changes to contact information to avoid any and all such issue(s).
In cases of Administrative Dissolution Reinstatement is not be available in cases of foreign entities (entities not originally formed within the state of Idaho). In such cases, An entity would have to refile a new Foreign Business Registration; as the filing could not be renewed.
This has happened in the past and a company of long-term standing with the State 25+ years, had to refile a new company and lose the previous history as a result.
