(a) Except as otherwise provided by law for specific business entities, a business entity administratively dissolved or whose certificate of authority is revoked for violation of any provision of this chapter may apply to the secretary of state for reinstatement within two (2) years after the effective date of dissolution or revocation. Reinstatement may be denied by the secretary of state if the business entity has been the subject of secretary of state and law enforcement investigation pertaining to fraud or any other violation of state or federal law, or if there is other reason to believe the business entity was engaged in illegal operations.
(b) If the secretary of state determines that the business entity is in compliance with this chapter, he shall cancel the certificate of dissolution or revocation and prepare a certificate of reinstatement that recites his determination and the effective date of reinstatement, file the original of the certificate, and serve a copy on the business entity as provided in this chapter.
(c) When the reinstatement is effective, it relates back to and takes effect as of the effective date of the administrative dissolution or revocation and the business entity resumes carrying on its business as if the administrative dissolution or revocation had never occurred.
(d) Appeals of decisions of the secretary of state under this section may be made as provided in W.S. 17-16-1423 .
