178.10102 Procedure for and effect of revocation.

(1) If the department determines that one or more grounds exist under s. 178.10101 for revocation of a statement of foreign registration, the department may give the foreign limited liability partnership notice of the determination. The notice shall be in writing and addressed to the registered office of the foreign limited liability partnership.

(2)

(a) Within 60 days after the notice under sub. (1) takes effect under s. 178.0103 (6), the foreign limited liability partnership shall, with respect to each ground for revocation, either correct it or demonstrate to the reasonable satisfaction of the department that it does not exist.

(b) If the foreign limited liability partnership fails to satisfy par. (a), the department may revoke the foreign limited liability partnership's statement of foreign registration by entering a notation in the department's records to reflect each ground for revocation and the effective date of the revocation. The department shall give the foreign limited liability partnership notice of each ground for revocation and the effective date of the revocation. The notice shall be in writing and addressed to the registered office of the foreign limited liability partnership.

(c)

1. The department shall reinstate the statement of foreign registration if the foreign limited liability partnership does all of the following within 6 months after the effective date of the revocation:

a. Corrects each ground for revocation.

b. Pays any fees or penalties due the department under this chapter or $5,000, whichever is less.

2. A reinstatement under this paragraph shall relate back to and take effect as of the effective date of the revocation, and the foreign limited liability partnership may resume carrying on its business as if the revocation never occurred.

(3)

(a) If a notice under sub. (1) or (2) (b) is returned to the department as undeliverable, the department shall again give notice to the foreign limited liability partnership. Except as provided under par. (b), the notice shall be in writing and addressed to the principal office of the foreign limited liability partnership.

(b) If the notice under par. (a) is returned to the department as undeliverable or if the foreign limited liability partnership's principal office cannot be determined from the records of the department, the department shall give notice by posting the notice on the department's Internet site.

(4) The authority of a foreign limited liability partnership to transact business in this state, other than as provided in s. 178.1005 (1) and (2), ends on the effective date of the revocation of its statement of foreign registration.

(5) If the department or a court revokes a foreign limited liability partnership's statement of foreign registration, the foreign limited liability partnership may be served under s. 178.0912 (2) or (3) or the foreign limited liability partnership's registered agent may be served until the registered agent's authority is terminated, in any civil, criminal, administrative, or investigatory proceeding based on a cause of action which arose while the foreign limited liability partnership was authorized to do business in this state.

(6) Revocation of a foreign limited liability partnership's statement of foreign registration does not terminate the authority of its registered agent.
