How to Terminate a LLC
A Certificate of Termination is filed to terminate an LLC. There is no filing fee for filing a Certificate of Termination for an LLC; however the entity must be current in its registration and in an active status prior to submitting a Certificate of Termination.
Before filing, check the Corporations Division web site to make sure the LLC is in “active/compliance” status. If the posted status is “active/noncompliance,” go to the “file annual registration” link and file the registration before submitting the termination document. An entity must be current to terminate. Registration submitted online before 4 p.m. will update the entity overnight.
Prepare a “Certificate of Termination” in the format below and mail it to: Corporations Division, 315 Floyd West Tower, #2 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, Atlanta, GA 30334.
The effective date of the termination will be the date the document is received by the Corporations Division. The processing time varies from two to eight days depending on workload; a certificate of termination will be mailed upon completion.
