The Rhode Island Limited-Liability Company Act

SECTION 7-16-53

§ 7-16-53. Cancellation of registration of foreign limited-liability company.

A foreign limited-liability company may cancel its registration by filing with the secretary of state a certificate of cancellation signed by a person with authority to do so under the laws of the state or other jurisdiction of its organization, or, if the foreign limited-liability company is under the supervision of a receiver or trustee, by the receiver or trustee on behalf of the foreign limited-liability company. In filing a certificate of cancellation, the foreign limited-liability company revokes the authority of its resident 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-liability company was authorized to transact business in this state may subsequently be made on the foreign limited-liability company 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-liability company that is served on the secretary of state.
