All Minnesota Cooperatives governed under Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 308A and 308B are required to file an Annual Renewal once every calendar year with the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Office. Filing this Annual Renewal does not satisfy any other legal requirement. If Minnesota statutes or rules require a filing with another office, you must submit that filing separately.
If changes to Registered Agent and/or Registered Office Address are necessary, an amendment to Registered Office Address/Agent form, along with the Annual Renewal form and separate filing and processing fees are required. Changes to the principal place of business and chief executive officer’s name and address can be made once a year by filing the Annual Renewal form with the State Offices for no additional fee. Additional Name and Article Changes are available via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
The processing fee is $67.50 for a Domestic Cooperative in good standing with the Minnesota Secretary of State.
Reinstatement requires $62.50 processing fee plus a $25 statutory reinstatement fee paid to the State of Minnesota for accounts that miss the yearly December 31st filing deadline and fall into Administratively Terminated or Dissolved status.
