SECTION 7-13-53

§ 7-13-53. Cancellation of registration.

When all fees and taxes have been paid to the tax administrator, as evidenced by an appropriate certificate of good standing issued by the Rhode Island division of taxation, a foreign limited partnership may cancel its registration by filing with the secretary of state a certificate of cancellation signed and sworn to by a general partner. In filing a certificate of cancellation, the foreign limited partnership revokes the authority of its registered agent to accept service of process and consents that service of process in any action, suit or proceeding based upon any cause of action arising in this state during the time the foreign limited partnership was authorized to transact business in this state may subsequently be made on the foreign limited partnership by service on the secretary of state. The certificate of cancellation must include the post office address to which the secretary of state may mail a copy of any process against the foreign limited partnership that is served on the secretary of state.
