How to Renew an LLC in Utah

By Joe Stone

Your Utah LLC must be renewed every year it is in existence. The renewal process involves providing the Utah Department of Commerce with the information required in your annual report and paying the current filing fee. The process is handled by the department's Division of Corporations and Commercial Code. The renewal period for your LLC begins 60 days before the anniversary date when your LLC was created. You will receive a postcard from the department reminding you to renew. The postcard provides instructions on how to complete the renewal online.

Step 1

Obtain from your LLC's registered agent the renewal notice for your company, which is a postcard mailed by the department at the beginning of the LLC's renewal period. The postcard has all the information you need to renew your LLC.

Step 2

Go to the home page for the Utah Division of Corporations and Commercial Code and select "Renew a business?" from the drop-down menu under "How Do I...." You will be taken to a page titled "How to renew a business?" In the first paragraph is a link using the phrase "renew the business entity online." Click the link to go to a page titled "The Renewal Process." Click the box with the phrase "Renew Your Business Online " to go to the online "Business Renewal" home page. The postcard with the renewal notice information may also state a website address you can use to directly access the "Business Renewal" home page.

Step 4

Complete the renewal process by entering your credit card information where indicated. After inserting the information from the renewal notice, you will be given a fee total. Once the credit card information is validated, you will be given a confirmation of the renewal.

How to Change From a DBA to an LLC

Any type of business can use a DBA, or "doing business as," designation as long as the proper paperwork is filed with the state where the business is operating. However, if the business is only using a DBA, it is most likely operating as a sole proprietorship. A sole proprietor must file articles of organization with the state to covert the business into a limited liability company, or LLC, and inform the state that the DBA registration is to be transferred to the new company.
