What is the Biennial Report Forgiveness Program?
The Biennial Report Forgiveness Program allows entities who have been revoked for failure to file or pay for past due BRA-25 reports to reinstate their entity without being charged a fee for these past due reports. Only the reinstatement fee will need to be paid. This program runs from September 1 – September 30, 2021.
Who is eligible for this program?
Entities wishing to take advantage of the program will need to meet the following criteria:
The entity must have been terminated or administratively dissolved due to failure to file or pay for due BRA-25 Biennial Reports.
The entity must have fewer than 50 employees.
How do I apply for this program?
Customers will need to provide Corporations with the following information before September 30, 2021:
A completed BRA-25 Biennial Report for the year it was most recently due (2020 or 2021)
A completed GN-17 Reinstatement of Domestic & Foreign Filing Entity under Forgiveness Program
Payment of the reinstatement fee
- Customers may file for reinstatement online but must first send a completed BRA-25 Biennial Report for the year it was most recently due (2020 or 2021) to email@example.com, Attn: Corporations Report Forgiveness Program.
You will be notified when your BRA-25 has been filed and receive instructions on how to reinstate via the CorpOnline portal.
What are the fees?
The reinstatement fee for for-profit entities is $300.
The reinstatement fee for non-profit entities is $80.
While a BRA-25 Report must be provided, there is no fee for this filing.
