Delinquency

Q1. Why does my business entity's status show Delinquent?

A1. An entity that fails to file a Periodic Report, or fails to appoint a new registered agent after the resignation of the current registered agent, will become Delinquent pursuant to section 7-90-901, C.R.S.

Entities that don’t file their report or keep a registered agent go into a noncompliant status and then delinquent.

If the Periodic Report Month is January, the report due date will be March 31st. If the Periodic Report is not filed on or before March 31st, the entity's status will become Noncompliant, and a late report will be due by May 31st. If the Periodic Report is not filed on or before May 31st, the entity's status will be changed to Delinquent.

If the entity's status is Delinquent, a Statement Curing Delinquency must be filed to return the entity's status to Good Standing.

You can refer to our interactive timeline to see the available filing dates.

Q2. When filing a Statement Curing Delinquency, why am I unable to keep the original name?

A2. The delinquent entity name is saved for the entity for 400 days from the date of delinquency. On the 401st day, the entity name is changed to include the word “delinquent” and the date of delinquency. The original entity name becomes available for another entity to use.

You can select another name for your entity by filing Articles of Amendment or Statement of Change.
